Once I tried this (BTW - thanks to you and Hamiltion Link) it worked, 
and I do indeed know more about 1 than I ever thought possible.  :)

My knowledge of packages was just dangerous enough to have seen 
"ccl::cinspect" and misread it as "ccl:cinspect". That of course 
didn't work. Other places did indeed omit the reference to the ccl 
package altogether. I think those places were comments in example 
sources.

I've been using <http://www.lisp.org> which seems to land one in the same site.

The book "Lisp", 3rd Edition by Winston & Horn is my primary learning 
vehicle right now. Augmented by side trips into "On Lisp" by Graham.
