I am intending to install Common Lisp on Mac. Installing Lisp is quite troublesome, for normal users who are used to installing everything in one click.
Clozure CL (App for Mac) seems to be the easiest option. However, I have been faced with Clozure CL App error: “Unknown Error” message, followed by “We Could not complete your request”. This error appears when I click on install the app.
The next method I am trying is http://www.jonathanfischer.net/modern-common-lisp-on-osx/. Currently at the step of installing Aquamacs, everything seems to be going smoothly so far.
Update: The above website’s method is not as easy as it looks. http://www.yellosoft.us/installing-common-lisp may be another easier option.
Some interesting Lisp books:
