Subject: Re: output S.O.S. From: Erik Naggum <email@example.com> Date: 1998/03/03 Newsgroups: comp.lang.lisp Message-ID: <firstname.lastname@example.org> * Scott Green | All I want to do (I'm sure it's v. simple, really) is get Lisp to send | its output to a file instead of (or as well as) the screen. The | literature states that all you need to do is put (format t "my output | text"), replacing t with the desired destination. But it ain't workin'. | It just doesn't want to know. in addition to the many excellent answers, also note that you can set or bind *STANDARD-OUTPUT* to some other stream object and still use T in FORMAT to write to it. don't know if this is what you really want. #:Erik -- God grant me serenity to accept the code I cannot change, courage to change the code I can, and wisdom to know the difference.
