trivial-sockets 0.2#

Sat, 30 Oct 2004 22:14:53 +0000

trivial-sockets 0.2 is out now. Available on your preferred cCLan mirror if and when said mirror next updates from ftp.linux.org.uk (must do something about that one day: if you recognise a site in the list at the cCLan redirector that's under your nominal control and it doesn't have trivial-sockets 0.2, please either rectify that or mail me and ask to be removed from the list), it includes client and server socket support for Allegro CL, CLISP, CMUCL, LispWorks, OpenMCL and SBCL, as well as client-only support for ABCL.

Some time in the near future I will compile a table containing all the options involved in the opening-a-socket-stream task that a user might reasonably want to frob, and all the various common lisp implementations in which they might want to frob them, and find some way to beat each of the various vendors around the head until their particular column is not full of "unimplemented in this lisp". in the meantime, the last section of the manual should give you a pretty good idea of what I'm getting at.

0.3 will have timeouts.
