About CL-ALL

This is a simple script to run a snippet in several lisp implementations. Requires at least SBCL.

How To

You can either build a fixed SBCL binary with make, or symlink to 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)")

Example Output

$ cl-all --print call-arguments-limit
 --> ABCL:     50
 --> Allegro:  16384
 --> CCL:      65536

 --> CLisp:    4096

 --> CMUCL:    536870911
 --> ECL:      65536
 --> MKCL:     2305843009213693951
 --> SBCL:     4611686018427387903

CLI Reference

cl-all (implementation | option | snippet)*

    The given implementation is run. If no implementations are
    explicitly specified, all known and available implementations
    are used.

    --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.

    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).
