 r13610 \begin{document} \title{A Manual for Armed Bear Common Lisp} \date{August 4, 2011} \date{October 2, 2011} \author{Mark~Evenson, Erik~Huelsmann, Alessio~Stallo, Ville~Voutilainen} \chapter{Running} ABCL is packaged as a single jar file (usually named either ABCL is packaged as a single jar file usually named either abcl.jar'' or something likeabcl-0.28.0.jar'' if you are using a versioned package) that can be executed under the control of a suitable JVM as follows versioned package from your system vendor.  This byte archive can be executed under the control of a suitable JVM by using the -jar'' option to parse the manifest, and select the named class (org.armedbear.lisp.Main) for excution: \begin{listing-shell} \end{listing-shell} For this command to work, the java'' executable needs to be in your N.b. for this command to work, the java'' executable needs to be in your path. If one is calling an primitive function in the CL package the syntax becomes considerably simpler if we can locate the instance of definition in the ABCL source, we can invoke the symbol directly.  To tell if a LispObject contains a reference to a symbol. becomes considerably simpler.  If we can locate the instance of definition in the ABCL Java source, we can invoke the symbol directly. For instnace, to tell if a LispObject contains a reference to a symbol. \begin{listing-java} boolean nullp(LispObject object) { LispObject result = Primitives.NULL.execute(object); if (result == NIL) { if (result == NIL) { // the symbol 'NIL' is explicity named in the Java // namespace at Symbol.NIL'' // but is always present in the // localnamespace in its unadorned form for // the convenience of the User. return false; } \end{listing-java} Although since in Lisp, any value other than NIL means "true", the use of Java equality it quite a bit easier and more optimal: Although since in Lisp, any value other than NIL means "true" (so-called generalized Boolean), the use of Java equality it quite a bit easier to type and more optimal in terms of information it conveys to the compiler would be: \begin{listing-java} \section{Pathname} We implment an extension to the Pathname that allows for the description and retrieval of resources named in a URI scheme that the JVM understands''.  Support is built-in to the http'' and https'' implementations but additional protocol handlers may be installed at runtime by having JVM symbols present in the sun.net.protocol.dynmamic pacakge. See [JAVA2006] for more details. ABCL has created three specializations of the ANSI Pathname construct contemporary Common Lisp implementation. In 201x, with the publication of this Manual stating its confformance to ANSI, we released abcl-1.0. In 201x, with the publication of this Manual explicitly stating the conformance of Armed Bear Common Lisp to ANSI, we release abcl-1.0. \section{References} [Java2000]:  A New Era for Java Protocol Handlers.  \url{http://java.sun.com/developer/onlineTraining/protocolhandlers}
