[Openmcl-devel] interactive nib loading

Hello folks,

This question is likely due to my lack of familiarity with Cocoa/ 
Objective C API and/or the corresponding openmcl bridge.  But I have  
attempted to find help in the documentation to no avail.

Essentially, I want to create an interface using Interface Builder  
save it and then load it interactively at the openmcl repl.  I simply  
do not even know which Cocoa function to use to load the nib file.   
This is complicated by the fact that the nib file is in the wild (some  
arbitrary path). I am going to go back and read some more about the  
interface builder but I would appreciate some help on the programmatic  

The closest matches to what I want seem to be by using the NSNib or  
NSBundle classes to load the nib file however, I am confused as to  
what arguments to give the various instantiate function on the lisp  

FYI, I am able to create the lisp version of the currency converter  
and I can also create a window interactively from the repl according  
to the documentation on the openmcl wiki.
