New SBCL Documentation Support in SLIME

SBCL + SLIME is my favorite Lisp environment on Linux. It just keeps getting better, sometimes daily!

See the link for a cool new feature in SBCL 0.8.11 and SLIME. Basically, some errors and warnings now generate a link to the CLHS and the SBCL manual explaining what's wrong. The SLIME support makes it clickable and brings up the doc in whatever browser you have defined in Emacs. This is really cool!

There's an example in the mailing list announcement above.

It looks excellent, but how do I point emacs to the place where I store the SBCL manual locally?

Set slime-sbcl-manual-root to the URL of your manual. The URL can point to the local filesystem, just use the syntax that your browser understands.
