I finally got Emacs  and Clisp running but have a related
problem, that the Clisp has no editing bar at all, and I need
to be able at least to capure and print program output.  All
the ftp sources say various things work on Windows, as
indeed they may, but I really need that printing capability.
Thanks for your original response, and for any further help.
