If you decide to do one of these, here's a wish list:
I always liked MCL's abbreviated :CL symbol documentation. It was
usually adequate without invoking the HyperSpec, and it launched
immediately. It's in the "MCL Help" file.
If we could borrow that doc, the pop-up window could initially use it
for :CL symbols. The window would also have a "HyperSpec" button.
Clicking it would launch the HyperSpec viewer for a second, more
The MCL doc does have some MCL specific stuff that would have to be
edited or eliminated. Just a thought.
