clfswm(1) A(nother) Common Lisp Full Screen Window Manager


clfswm [implementation]


CLFSWM is a 100% Common Lisp X11 window manager (based on Tinywm and Stumpwm. Many thanks to them). It can be driven only with the keyboard or with the mouse.

CLFSWM uses the following rules to determine which implementation should be used:

1. the first command line argument.

2. environment variable $LISP

3. the first line like "debian=<impl>" in its configuration file.

4. clisp

CLFSWM handles clisp, sbcl and cmucl internally. If you specify a different implementation, CLFSWM will try to execute the command clfswm-<implementation>. See /usr/share/doc/clfswm/README.Debian for details.
