How do Clisp and cmucl compare in other areas?

Or pure Common Lisp. But I am unsure of the feasibility of performing
IPC & networking with pure Common Lisp code. How do you think?

Does scheme have an interface to gtk+? I wanted to use GNUPlot for
graphing and have planned to 'control' GNUPlot using IPC
(pipes/etc). There thre better interfaces available?

Could you give me the URL for these please?

Thanks a lot for everything!

p.s. One major reason why I am considering using Common Lisp over
guile is the availability of documentations. Much of guile is
undocumented. And I have a hard time building from the source. I hope
that will change.
