3.2 Setting global preferences

Choose LispWorks > Preferences... to invoke the global preferences dialog. This dialog is used to specify global preferences, such as the name of the initialization file to use (which is initially .lispworks ).

Note: it is up to each user to create and maintain their own personal initialization file. A sample personal initialization file is supplied with LispWorks - see the file Library/ lib/4-4-0-0/config/a-dot-lispworks.lisp in the LispWorks distribution.
