[Openmcl-devel] Clozure/Lisp newbie question

Hello All,

Sorry for the delay. I got distracted by work. I just wanted to say thanks for your responses. I was really hoping that things would be reasonably portable. I would seem if one is careful, it's possible to write the bulk of an application with the Mac IDE and then do some minor tweaking for the other platforms if necessary.

Thanks Again,

I assume if I were to refrain from using anything Mac specific it should be fairly portable. Is this a true statement?

I believe so.  There are a few exceptions (the IDE is obviously a big one), but generally CCL provides the same features on all of the platforms it runs on.
