This may be the piece that gets me converted to using CCL.

One quick comment:

It might be helpful to some really stupid beginners (ahem...yes, me) to point out what it takes to get CCL to load the ccl-init.lisp file on startup. I assume it goes someplace where CCL expects it, but where?

As I learned, I kept fairly detailed notes about what I learned and have incorporated that into a tutorial. I wanted to do something similar to what Aaron Hillegass did with his book "Cocoa Programming for Mac OS X" , but using Lisp as the interface language. The tutorial is included in the material that I submitted:

You might want to glance at the tutorial to see how I set up ccl-init.lisp to make that fairly easy to do and for instructions on how to run the examples. I specifically wanted to avoid having to create stand-alone executables in order to use my interfaces although I didn't want to preclude that either.
