Re: Installing lisp programs.



That's exactly the problem with this package. When I got it there was no
README file nor a install file. There was zilch.
It was in a standard tarball so all I had to do was untar it, but I am not
sure how this program is to be installed. I guess I will try and find
another one that has some sort of README documentation.
