Complete documentation for CL-FAD can be found in the 'doc'
CL-FAD also supports Nikodemus Siivola's HYPERDOC, see
1.1. Probably the easiest way is
This should compile and load CL-FAD on most Common Lisp
1.2. With MK:DEFSYSTEM you can make a symbolic link from
'cl-fad.system' and 'cl-fad-test.system' to your central registry
(which by default is in '/usr/local/lisp/Registry/') and then issue
Note that this relies on TRUENAME returning the original file a
symbolic link is pointing to. This will only work with AllegroCL
6.2 if you've applied all patches with (SYS:UPDATE-ALLEGRO).
1.3. You can also use ASDF instead of MK:DEFSYSTEM in a similar way
(use the .asd files instead of the .system files).
CL-FAD comes with a small test suite. To start it just load the file
"test.lisp" and evaluate (CL-FAD-TEST:TEST).
