[Openmcl-devel] Re: Trying to get LISA to run

Okay, no wonder nobody replied, since what I wrote was nonsense.
Actually there 2 problems, the first one is that require stuff (that 
one I wrongly thought caused all this mess). I guess this one I could
circumvent by loading the needed file explicitly.

The major problem seems to be that in a file called epilogue.lisp I got 
the following code

      #\# #\? #'(lambda (strm subchar arg)

which is the evildoer. Is the problem here that character "?" is the 
prompt in openmcl?  Is there an intelligent way to solve this conflict?

Thank you for any hints.
