How to run a Lisp process using ILISP
*************************************

   To start a Lisp use `M-x run-ilisp', or a specific dialect like `M-x
allegro'.  If called with a prefix you will be prompted for a buffer
name and a program to run.  The default buffer name is the name of the
dialect.  The default program for a dialect will be the value of
DIALECT-program or the value of ilisp-program inherited from a less
specific dialect.  If there are multiple LISP's, use the dialect name or
`M-x select-ilisp' (`C-z S') to select the current ILISP buffer.

   Entry into ILISP mode runs the hooks on `comint-mode-hook' and
`ilisp-mode-hook' and then DIALECT-hooks specific to LISP dialects in
the nesting order above.  Many dialects call `ilisp-load-init' in their
dialect setup.

   These are the currently supported dialects.  The dialects are listed
so that the indentation correponds to the hierarchical relationship
between dialects.
      clisp
        allegro
        lucid
        kcl
          akcl
          ibcl
        cmulisp
      scheme
        oaklisp

   If anyone figures out support for other dialects I would be happy to
include it in future releases.  Note: Dialects.
