I use ECL and Slime from CVS and it drops immediately into the debugger,
which seems to cause yet another error:
The function SWANK::MAKE-WEAK-KEY-HASH-TABLE is undefined.
[Condition of type UNDEFINED-FUNCTION]
("Namestring" (NAMESTRING PATHNAME))
FUNCTION: Not a valid argument "Namestring".
You can do some basic stuff in the REPL, but e.g. swank-backend::arglist
seems completely broken (errors).
The last time I used ECL with Slime (which was sometime last year), it
worked quite ok, albeit without all the bells and whistles of the SBCL
"[...] a few rock stars might be able to blast out some insanely
awesome system in three months using Lisp, but it will typically take
a dozen average programmers 18 months to trudge through it in Java,
VB.NET, or C#." - Justin James' TechRepublic Blog
