Nice UI touch
Wednesday, March 29, 2006

Who says text can't have a UI (*)? I was looking a bit more closely at Brian Mastenbrook's colorize package and noticed this little gem:

(when (> (- (get-universal-time) *last-warn-time*) 10)
  (format *trace-output* 
          "Warning: could not find hyperspec map file. ~
           Adjust the path at the top of clhs-lookup.lisp ~
           to get links to the HyperSpec.~%")
  (setf *last-warn-time* (get-universal-time)))

Only giving the warning once every 10-seconds is a nice touch.

(*) Frankly, I've never heard anyone say that but it sounds provocative, so what the heck!
