This module provides support for Common Lisp and the Sly development environment. Common Lisp is not a single language but a specification, with many competing compiler implementations. By default, Steel Bank Common Lisp (SBCL) is assumed to be installed, but this can be configured.
Common Lisp benefits from a mature specification and rich standard library. Thanks to its powerful REPL and debugger, it boasts an “interactive programming” style often unseen in other languages. Compiled Common Lisp programs are trusted to run unmodified for a long time.

1.2. Module Flags
This module has no flags.
No hacks documented for this module.
This module requires the SBCL compiler to be installed.
This module does not integrate with the lsp module. Sly (and SLIME before it) is considered the defacto development environment for Common Lisp and provides much of what is normally expected of an LSP, plus tight integration with the REPL and Emacs.
Using this module is mostly a matter of using Sly. Please consider reading through the Sly Tour.
A Sly session will be started when you open a .lisp file. Use SPC m ' to switch to the REPL minibuffer.
This module also enables the evaluation of lisp source blocks in Org Mode. However, you will need a running Sly session for this to work. M-x sly starts such a session if you didn’t have one open already.
If you don’t want Sly to use SBCL, you can configure the variable
inferior-lisp-program to some other binary on your PATH.
