[Openmcl-devel] Running ccl as a shebang script

I've been meaning to write to this list to ask for advice, about
the way I've been using the shell and ASDF to invoke a CCL program
as a Unix tty command.  This thread seems like a good place to ask.

I deliberately set it up to be self-contained in its own, normal,
visible directory; I don't like programs that spam parts of themselves
into invisible subdirectories of $HOME.

This program only runs once per day, so I don't care if it wastes a
second starting some unnecessary /bin/sh processes, or wastes a second
loading multiple FASL files instead of loading a single heap image.

Can anyone suggest any other improvements?

See transcript below with ~10 lines of shell script, ~5 lines of ASDF,
and a directory listing, preceded by 4 commands that were typed to get
the listings.

Two clarifications:  (1) The leading and trailing newlines aren't
really in the text files; they're added by $LESSOPEN for legibility.
(2) ~/bin/report-spam is just a link to ~/report-spam/src/report-spam.

$ cd ~/report-spam
$ ls -dl $(find -name lib -prune -o -true) > ../dir.txt
$ emacs ../dir.txt  # (edit out unnecessary bulk)
$ echo; less ../bin/report-spam asd/report-spam.asd ../dir.txt | cat


#! /bin/sh

 --eval '(require "asdf")'\
 --eval '(require "report-spam")'\
 --eval '(in-package "REPORT-SPAM")'\
 --eval '(report-spam)'\
 --eval '(quit)'


(in-package "ASDF-USER")

(defsystem "report-spam"
  :depends-on ((:require "pty") "smtp4cl")
  :components ((:file "report-spam")))
