| The problem I'm having is that certain functions in the Emacs side of the
| interface (in the "fi" directory), seem not to be defined anywhere.  For
| example, trying to evaluate a Lisp expression in an emacs buffer using
| either the pop-up menu or the hot-keys, results in a call to
| lep::evaluation-request which is not defined anywhere.  Indeed, a grep of
| the fi directory turns up only the call and no definition.

it's not a call, it's just a form.  fi::make-request is a macro whose first
argument is sent to the inferior Allegro process.  lep::evaluation-request
should thus be defined in the Allegro Common Lisp image.

    (apropos :evaluation)

should report two symbols.  if you get none, you might have tweaked the
readtable-case to make ACL case sensitive.  off the top of my head, I can't
think of any other reason it doesn't work for you.  (however, with more
specific information from you, I can most probably help you, so if you
don't want to use the newsgroup, feel free to mail me.)
