I am developing an application using Slime and SBCL. My OS is Ubuntu 20.04 LTS. I am new to the Common Lisp, SBCL, Slime, and Emacs universe.
I load the application with
load-system and, finally, the application's name.
(slime-setup '(slime-fancy slime-asdf slime-indentation slime-sbcl-exts slime-scratch)) in my config files.
When I decide to quit the REPL, I insert a comma "," and type the command "quit" (or "sayonara" which is funnier).
After doing that, sometimes I receive this message (I guess the message depends on package use and if I have started or not the application being developed):
Buffer "inferior-lisp" has a running-process, kill it? (yes or no)
This annoys me. I always press "yes".
1 - Is there any downside of pressing yes? What is running on inferior lisp that I could lose?
2 - If safe or seen as a good practice, is there a way to configure Slime or Emacs so that this message will not be appearing anymore?
My question is similar to this guys, but he was using Windows.
