applescript from clozure

Posted on 2016-07-11 11:54 lisp, technical

when attempting to call applescript from clozure cl, there's a noticeable delay. it took me a while to remember how i solved that problem last time, so i'm keeping it here as a reminder. mac os x requires clozure application, and that presumably applies to other applications, to be signed in order to skip AS runtime validation (???). it's possible to self-sign, and avoid paying the developers' license. the procedure is exhaustively described in GNAT's documentation, https://gcc.gnu.org/onlinedocs/gnat_ugn/Codesigning-the-Debugger.html.

i'm trying out capi, despite being married to lispworks and generally being proprietary, it is still best available common lisp gui option.
