9.2 Delivering a standalone image

We now have a delivery script, enabling us to deliver the application as conveniently as possible. We can now try to deliver a simple, standalone image (with the delivery script having been set up to deliver at delivery level 0) to verify that the application can function standalone, before trying to make it smaller.

  1. Run the image with the script as an initialization file:
  2. lispworks-4-4-5 -init script.lsp

    See Delivering the program for details of how to run the image with a script on your platform.

    The script runs for a while, and as delivery proceeds a number of messages are printed. When it is finished, the image exits and there is an executable file called othello.exe in your current working folder on Windows, and othello in your working directory on UNIX/Linux/Mac OS X.

  3. Execute the othello file.
  4. This should be a working, standalone Othello game.

    Note: On Mac OS X/Cocoa you will also need to create an application bundle to run GUI applications properly. See Creating a Mac OS X application bundle for details.

See How to deliver a standalone version of your application for a more detailed discussion of this part of the delivery process.
