use Aquamacs if you are on OS X, using this environment with either  
sbcl or clisp will run the software on the CD as is.

Yes on all accounts, but its new and doesnt correspond exactly with  
the book or run its examples.
The scheme version (Grace) is what I will be working on in the future.  
One possibility would be for me to rewrite the examples in the book  
for the scheme/cm in Grace.

You can load any version of CM2 into guile (snd).

Im actually thinking over a new edition of Notes from the Metalevel  
that would include additional chapters (cellular automata, l-systems,  
interactive examples) . THis would of course use the Grace application  
and i would probably use SAL for the examples.
