There are a number of files that contain configuration and initialization information:
config/configure.lispcontains many default configuration settings. You should created a customized copy of this file when you install LispWorks, as described in the LispWorks Release Notes and Installation Guide .
config/key-binds.lispgives the default editor key bindings for Emacs emulation.
config/mac-key-binds.lispgives the editor key bindings for Mac OS editor emulation, if supported on your platform.
config/msw-key-binds.lispgives the editor key bindings for Microsoft Windows editor emulation, if supported on your platform.
