load. This function reads the specified file and evaluates each form in the file, just as though you had entered each form at the top-level prompt. You can save your entire Lisp environment, including user-defined functions or application packages, by using the function disksave. This function, which is an extension to Common Lisp, saves the current Lisp image on disk.
Once you have saved an image on disk, you can invoke that image by entering its name at the operating system prompt. For example, assume that you have used the function
disksave to create an image named
mylisp. The following expression starts up the
% mylispFor more information, see the reference page for
