I love Doc Viewer ... It is possibly the best way to look things up
in the standard.
* I would love to see this available as a separate program and
not part of the IDE ...
* Searching should search the whole word, not just the start.
For example, searching for "hash" should find "with-hash-table-iterator"
* Can't seem to copy from the Doc Viewer and paste into some
other apps, such as Mail.
* It would be nice to be able to view the documentation strings
of user defined function in Doc Viewer
* The argument list disappears way too quickly ... I generally
don't have time to read it before it's gone.
* Performance once it's loaded is good enough
* No line wrapping is disturbing
* Everything that I tried, expect the inspector, seems to work.
One question, why tie this to Openmcl? Like many out there I user emac
+slime for the majority of my lisp development and I often use and
test in multiple lisps. Your IDE shows a lot of promise, it would be
cool if it could be used as a replacement emacs/slime for a more OSX
friendly experience no matter what lisp your listener is. Just a
