Ouch, it looks like this old dog must now learn some new tricks. I admit
that the previous method was simpler for me. Some questions: If I want
everything loaded into CM (Fomus, PM, CMN, CLM, the works), do I need to
issue a use-system for each one ? Also, what if I don't want to place
all my Lisp components into one directory ? Will that adversely affect
how I build/start/use CM ?
Will I need to call use-system if I want to use the CMIO panel or can I
still conveniently invoke the component programs from the panel ?
Btw, happy holidays to Rick and all cmdist users and developers !
