Vim environment for SICP on Windows


SICP means Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programmings. This quick note is for a Common Lisp environment configuration for learning SICP on Windows.

  1. Common Lisp is my choice, while MIT-Scheme is the recommendation of SICP. Download it from https://common-lisp.net/downloads/. I am using CCL for it is the default in tutorial for Slimv.
  2. Download Slim: https://github.com/slime/slime/releases.
  3. Download Vim Plugin slimv.vim http://www.vim.org/scripts/script.php?script_id=2531

Configurations in .vimrc

let g:slimv_swank_cmd = '!start "<ccl dir>/wx86cl.exe"
\ -l "<slime dir>\start-swank.lisp"'
