Yep, this is what I do.

I've tried several things:

     a) Loading with no args, opening the file, then M-x clpmud
     b) Loading the file from the shell, then M-x clpmud
     c) Every other key-combo I could think of :)

It seems that M-x clpmud is supposed to run a macro. However, how will emacs 
know of a macro's existence if I don't define it in some way? I mean - 
loading the file for editing shouldn't do it...

No probs, any help is good help.
