Sometimes, all you want is a plain window that you can pop up and draw stuff into.
I wrote an example that demonstrates how to initialize Cocoa and create and draw in a window without having to set up an application bundle or use a nib file.
You can run this example from Emacs and Slime, and it will work. You don't need to be running CCL's Cocoa-based IDE (and in fact, you better not be).
I put it at http://www.clozure.com/~rme/no-nib-cocoa.lisp. Please give it a look; if I get some positive feedback, I can add it to the ccl:examples; directory.
The following links were useful in figuring out how to do this:
