Installation Instructions

The installation is actually quite simple and just takes a few minutes.

Step 1 only has to be done one time. After the first time, when you want to install new versions of AllegroCache, you can skip directly to step 2.

  1. [Skip this step if you already have Allegro CL installed.]
    Install Allegro Common Lisp, if you do not already have it installed. You can download Allegro CL here.
  2. Make sure you have all the latest patches to Allegro CL installed.
    This will download and install the latest available version of AllegroCache.
  3. Test the installation by evaluating one of the forms printed by this (what you would type is in bold):
    cl-user(1): (require :acache)
    ; Fast loading /net/quadra/acl/10.0/bin/linux86/code/acache.001
    ;;; Installing acache patch, version 1.
    ; While evaluating #'(:top-level-form "" 234):
    Error: You have loaded the AllegroCache stub file.  To prevent problems
           with loading incompatible databases, you must load a specific
           version of AllegroCache.  The versions available in your
           installation are listed below, but later versions maybe be
           available for downloaded with system:update-allegro.
           To load AllegroCache, please use one of the following forms:
             (require :acache "acache-3.0.8.fasl")
             (require :acache "acache-3.0.7.fasl")
             (require :acache "acache-3.0.6.fasl")
             (require :acache "acache-3.0.5.fasl")

    ************ Changes:
    - no code changes, same as 3.0.7, except the stub file prints version
      and changelog information previously on the website
    - client/server expression cursor fix
    - the patch for 3.0.5 was really 3.0.4, on some platforms; fix this
      by bumping the version number and releasing a new patch on all
    Restart actions (select using :continue):
     0: retry the load of sys:;code;acache.fasl
