Editor Hints
The Editor Hints system is intended to provide a number of facilities to provide hints in lisp code that can be consulted by editor interfaces to determine how to indent, etc.

The common-lisp.net project page is here.

Planned components:

  • named-readtables (done)
  • facility to specify how forms are supposed to be indented
  • Documentation retrieval (this became hyperdoc)
  • support for using markup in docstrings
  • First class source locations
  • functions to query the programmer for input
