newlisp app as tgz

Post by ralph.ronnquist »

Newlisp is as fun as always, and in the spirit of it I like to point you at
http://www.realthing.com.au/files/newlisp/lsptar.lsp
which is a couple of stanzas to run newlisp programs in/from/as tar files (compressed or uncompressed). This is to let you package up a program of many lsp files into a tgz file, and then run this elsewhere without unpacking them; kind of an alternative to embedding.

EDIT: that last polishing I did before presenting it here splashed egg in my face :-(
Obviously it held the bug of failing on anything but for "run the first file" option...
I've uploaded the corrected version now.
