This is a simple script to run a snippet in several lisp implementations. Requires at least SBCL.
You can either build a fixed SBCL binary with
make, or symlink
cl-all. Either way, once
cl-all is in your path:
cl-all '(print :hi)' cl-all sbcl ecl '(print "Oh man!")' cl-all --print '"Oh man"' cl-all --file "something.lisp" echo ":stdin" | cl-all --print
You can also load this system into your SBCL session and use it from the comfort of the REPL:
(cl-all:eval-in-lisp :ecl "(print call-arguments-limit)")
$ cl-all --print call-arguments-limit --> ABCL: 50 --> Allegro: 16384 --> CCL: 65536 --> CLisp: 4096 --> CMUCL: 536870911 --> ECL: 65536 --> MKCL: 2305843009213693951 --> SBCL: 4611686018427387903
cl-all (implementation | option | snippet)* implementation: The given implementation is run. If no implementations are explicitly specified, all known and available implementations are used. option: --print -p Causes the last form's value to be printed. --file -f Uses the given file as input. --eval -e Evaluates the given expression. --lisps -l Lists all known and available implementations. -- All further arguments are used as tokens to be evaluated, concatenated by spaces. snippet: A lisp snippet to be evaluated. If no snippet, file, or eval option is given, the standard input is used to read forms from. Forms are read until EOF is encountered (C-d).
