1.4 Notation and conventions

Throughout this manual you will find references such as "... the LispWorks file foo/bar.lisp ...". This means a file bar.lisp in a subdirectory foo of the LispWorks library directory. You can obtain the full path of such a file by evaluating this form in your LispWorks image:

(sys:lispworks-file "foo/bar.lisp")

The LispWorks manuals follow the notation used in Common Lisp: the Language (2nd Edition).

Please note that your windows may differ in some respects from the illustrations given in the LispWorks manuals. This is because some details are controlled by the window manager that you are using, not by LispWorks itself.
