After adding ":depends-on (:clx)" to my ".asd" file, "clx-gui-mono" no
longer errors out. I tried ":depends-on (:xlib)" which is also in
"*features*" but it didn't like that.
However, I still haven't discovered how to invoke "(clx-gui:start)"
when I run "clx-gui-mono". All "clx-gui-mono" does when I run it is
terminate without doing anything.
I know that the application runs without problems because from the ECL
prompt, I can do:
which runs the application.
So again I ask:
What is the proper way to access a particular function of a stand-alone
executable at start up? Is it done somehow in the ".asd" file or by
passing arguments to the executable? I again tried various renditions of
(eval-when... but without success. I haven't yet discovered the correct
combination and I've run out of things I can think of to try.
