Ok, so I downloaded the latest 6.0.1 Lispworks for windows, and I do not
see anywhere in
the gui even a mention of ASDF - there is no "button"...  On their web
site, they state that
they have ASDF integration in IDE - I don't see it.  The link in their
web pages takes me here:

To use ASDF in the LispWorks IDE:

1.	Load ASDF and some ASDF system definitions in the usual ASDF
2.	Load the file (example-file "misc/asdf-integration.lisp") .

>From the above: Load ASDF and some ASDF system definitions in the usual
ASDF way. (WTF, I
don't know what the "usual way" is...?)  What is the usual way????

Ok, so I ran the second line called (example-file ......  And I assume
that does something also,
although they don't say what....  Why is it called example-file???  What
is example-file?  What
kind of a function is that?

Ok, so, I also downloaded cl-ppcre-2.0.3 (I can't use quicklisp network
type installations
because I am at a bank, and they have serious firewalls preventing stuff
just like this).  So,
I downloaded this package, and I unzipped it, and I did notice that
there is amongst other
files a cl-ppcre.asd file (probably important).  So, this is what I

LispWorks 6.0.1 which is supposed to be already ASDF ready on Windows

Unzipped cl-ppcre-2.0.3

So, assuming that the whole thing is ASDF ready, how do I load up and

Why is this so friggin' frustrating - I just wanna code in Lisp, not
fight Lispworks and

Thanks, Alex.
