Abstract: "One of the most frequent complaints in the Lisp community is the lack of availability of programming tools. This document describes portable implementations of six tools for the development and maintenance of Common Lisp programs: XREF, a Lisp code cross referencer; METERING, a timing and consing code profiler; DEFSYSTEM, a 'make' for Lisp; LOGICAL-PATHNAMES, portable pathnames for Lisp; SOURCE-COMPARE, a 'diff' for Lisp; and USER-MANUAL, a program which extracts documentation for Lisp programs. All six tools are publicly available via anonymous ftp."
