Please excuse my extremely naive question.  I've been reading many
documents over the last week and have yet to find a definitive way to
send and receive data via sockets in CCL.  How does one send/receive
data over TCP in CCL?  I got the OpenMCL REPL from 2004ish working (a
rather nice piece of work btw).  But, now I'd like to do more advanced
things like send data back instead of a string.

As a starting point, here's some of what I've been doing:

In LISP session 0:
(setf *socket?* (make-socket :local-host "" :local-port 24365
:remote-host "" remote-port 23459 :connect :passive :type
:stream :reuse-address t))

In LISP session 1:
(setf *socket?* (make-socket :local-host "" :local-port 23459
:remote-host "" remote-port 24365 :connect :active :type
:stream :reuse-address t))
(format *socket* "hello")

In LISP session 0:
(read-line *socket* nil nil)
; now I hit an error about how *socket* isn't of type stream.  How do
I make *socket* of type stream?

I'm almost positive reuse-address is optional (I think t is the default?).


If it matters, I'm on the official CCL64 1.2 release (++official release).
