ASDF-Status update
Sunday, April 16, 2006

I've re-run ASDF-Status on 3 versions of Allegro, two versions of OpenMCL, one version of SBCL and CLISP (all on OS X). There are 18 new systems

but the overall results are still pretty poor across the board. OpenMCL (version 1.0) does the best with 152 successful installs (out of 242). It is followed closely by Allegro 7.0 and 8.0 and then SBCL 0.9.9. Allegro in Modern mode scores the worst with only 92 successful installs (this isn't surprising and since 'regular' Allegro does so well, correcting these systems is probably just a matter of fixing the case of a couple of symbols.)

Every time I look at ASDF-Status's output, I get about a 1000-ideas of ways that it could be better and more informative. Perhaps I'll actually get around to improving things before I start running it again. I also want to throw in another plug for the Tinaa produced documentation. I hope to add some graphs and improve the display of internal and external symbols next. Other ideas are welcome.
