Solved

Posted on 2008-10-20

Hi all,

I'm new to the Lisp world. I'm using Allegro CL as my IDE. I have a program (2d.lisp) that I would like to run under this environment but I get an error every time I try to run this code. All I do is to type in (load "2d.lisp") to load the file. Then when I try to run the function by typing in (path-planning-problem (*scene-4.17*)) I get an error. I have attached the 2d.lisp to this post.

I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong and I'd appreciate your help.
