[Openmcl-devel] Cocoa - small question about send

You're very close. You want

(ccl:send (find-clss 'ns:ns-bundle) 'main-bundle)

Keyword arguments must have an an actual argument, so if you're sending 
a message that
doesn't take an argument, you just quote it.

You have the same problem when you declare new methods, so while 
terminate looks like this:

;;
;;- (void)terminate:(id)sender
;;

(define-objc-method ((:void :terminate sender)
	                         	     lisp-application)
   (declare (ignore sender))
   (quit))

The init method doesn't take an argument and you would code it like 
this:
;;
;;- (id)init
;;

(define-objc-method ((::void init)
                                     ns-lisp-exception)
   (send self
	:init-with-name #@"lisp exception"
	:reason #@"lisp exception"
	:user-info (%null-ptr)))

Notice that init is not a keyword.
