An Armed Bear in Hock with the Dock

This season finds us remembering Wilde's remark about fashion being so unbearable that it must be utterly destroyed every six months.  In that spirit, we submit to current fashion in documenting how ABCL repl may be obtained locally viz:

   docker run --tty easye/abcl /usr/local/bin/abcl

Happy holidays!


One may need to explicitly update the base openjdk8 container that easye/abcl is based on via:

        docker pull easye/openjdk8
        docker run easye/abcl /usr/local/bin/abcl

[Docker Engine]: https://www.docker.com/products/docker-engine

If you want a specific packaging to add your own Java/Lisp artifacts, you may easily rebuild the Docker image that the container starts with from cloning the ABCL source and then issuing:

        docker pull easye/openjdk8
        docker build -t easye/abcl .

See http://abcl.org/svn/trunk/abcl/Dockerfile  for build instructions.
