  "description": "<p>Any reasonably large program has to use local variables. It is quite common in the Lisp language family to also allow functions that exist only in a local scope. Scoping rules often allow compilers to optimize away parts of the local environment; doing that is good for performance, but sometimes inconvenient for debugging.</p>\n\n<p>We present a debugging library for Common Lisp that ensures access to the local variables during debugging. To prevent the optimisations from removing access to these variables, we use code-walking macros to store references to the local variables (and functions) inside global variables.</p>",
