here's a patch that adds docstrings to most common-lisp-user
symbols. i used the docstrings from sbcl 0.8.18. (sbcl/cmucl
are under a public domain license except for the few bits like
loop and pcl that retain a bsd license.)
the majority of docstrings that already existed in the code were
identical or a slight variation. i didn't add any that would have
required adding a defgeneric or (setf documentation) form.
i made no code changes and limited any formatting changes to the
occasional newline and removal of trailing whitespace before a
i also didn't modify the docstring if it referred to an argument
that was a variation of the one used in the actual arglist. (for
example, docstring uses "SYMBOL" where the arglist uses "sym".)
the spelled-out version is likely more informative.
due to the bootstrapping issue gary mentioned, very few of these
actually make it to the dumped image. mine grew by ~32k. i think
it makes sense to commit these before making any code changes to
actually use them.
since the patch is >250k, here's a link:
