 'manpage'-like CL-Definitions availiable ?

Does anybody know a place, where I could find the definitions of
common lisp as an easy-to-index-file (plain ascii, one file per
definition or group of definitions) or perhaps as UNIX-like manpages ?

Thanks

Well. If you happen to have a TI Explorer Lisp machine on your
network, you can use my GNU Emacs interface, rpc-hm, to access
Explorer functions like DOCUMENTATION, in your case.

(lisp-dir-apropos "rpc") gives me:

             GNU Emacs Lisp Code Directory Apropos -- "rpc"
"~/" refers to
archive.cis.ohio-state.edu:/pub/gnu/emacs/elisp-archive/

rpc-hm (1.0)          92-07-20

     ugle.unit.no:/pub/gnu/emacs-lisp/rpc-hm-1.0.tar.Z
     Networking library for interfacing GNU Emacs with remote Lisp
Machines

Check out the Elisp function called rld-describe-function/variable:

E.g. (rld-describe-function 'machine-instance) gives:

Function LISP:MACHINE-INSTANCE ()

        Return a string that identifies which particular machine this
implementation is.

;;; End of documentation for MACHINE-INSTANCE provided by REMULUS.

Typically I bind this function to C-h f when working with Lisp code to
easily access doc for the functions appearing in the source code.

rpc-hm works with Symbolics as well, but unfortunately Symbolics
doesn't make the documentation available outside their own Document
Examiner, so it won't be of any help to you.

Cheers,
Eyvind.

With Allegro Common Lisp comes an on-line manual facility accessed via
GNU Emacs.  It is very similar to UNIX man pages (ie, one page per
definition).
