[Openmcl-devel] Setting a toplevel function for build-application

Hi All,

I have a small standalone application that I've written that works on  
OSX 10.5 PPC (using CCL 1.6) and also on OSX 10.8 Intel (using CCL  
1.9).  It's published at


and while the application itself is probably of very little interest  
to this list, I think maybe the toplevel code might be useful.  Look  
classes, and then in build-app.lisp for a function to build a  
standalone application.

One word of warning though, I was learning about Cocoa when I was  
writing this so it's all a bit ugly and needs to be tidied up and  
properly organised.

Why didn't I use Paul Krueger's framework?  Because I started this  
before he released his latest framework, and I wanted to support PPC  

Hope this helps,

Paul Onions
