The following command line options are supported by the system.
names a file to be loaded on startup. The file is the LispWorks site initialization file, containing code that by default is loaded when LispWorks is started by any user in that installation. The default is to load the file that is the result of evaluating

init-file names a file to be loaded on startup after siteinit-file . The file is user's own LispWorks initialization file, containing code that by default is loaded when LispWorks is started. It is useful for loading initializations that should not be done for all users.
Initially the default is to load the file

Your default initialization file can be set in the Common LispWorks IDE. See "Setting global preferences" in the Common LispWorks User Guide for details.

Sets the X display to use when starting a LispWorks GUI on X Windows.
Initializes multiprocessing on startup. See Multiprocessing.
Suppresses the execution of a restart function on startup. Restart functions can be supplied when saving an image to automatically invoke application code. This argument suppresses that behavior. See
LispWorks Reference Manual
orbport specifies a port number for the LispWorks ORB. The special value 0 allows the system to pick a port.
This special argument is supported in LispWorks for Linux only. It causes the image to relocate at the address
. This is useful on a system where libraries are mapped in address space between
where LispWorks wants to grow. LispWorks will attempt to 'skip' over these libraries, but it is better to relocate the LispWorks image above the libraries, avoiding the need to skip, if you can.
If the image is saved, then on restart without
, it will locate itself automatically at
Note: to be effective,
must be the first argument on the LispWorks command line.
