Hi -

I am enjoying the LispWorks IDE now for about three days and I just
love it. It does have a class browser - and a function call browser, a
system browser, a ... well, lot's of stuff. LW Personal
Edition. Free. Installs in 5 min (including DL time for me).

The interesting thing to me is that the OP asked for something vastly different and un-Lispy. You describe a Lisp compiler, repl, and full blown IDE, he just wants to get from Lisp source to a reasonable visualization. Yes, a compiler/IDE is a "tool", but I am somehow hearing "without compiling the whole damn thing".

If I am mistaken, the tool I would suggest is PRINT.
