Alternate McCLIM system definition for faster compilation

Tuesday, February 1, 2005

Andreas Fuchs has posted (see also this relevant blog entry) the alternate McCLIM system definition mcclim.asd, which makes recompilation much faster when only a few source files are changed. It does that by keeping track of file dependencies more extensively than the current system definition does.

Andreas tested mcclim.asd only with SBCL. After an embarrassing blunder, I did it with CMUCL: compilation time is halved.

Note that the system definition by Andreas only works with ASDF, which may or may not be an issue for you.
