28.1 Introduction

The Application Builder makes it easier to create applications, typically by calling deliver . This tool helps you to control and debug the delivery process. On Intel Macintosh computers, it also eases the building of universal binaries.

To create an Application Builder, choose Tools > Application Builder or click in the Podium.

Note: the Application Builder needs deliver (or save-image ) functionality and therefore it is not available in LispWorks Personal Edition.

On first use the Application Builder appears all set to build the CAPI example Hello World, as shown in The Application Builder with the Hello World example below.

Figure 28.1 The Application Builder with the Hello World example

Choose Works > Build > Build or click to build the Hello World example.

Then choose Works > Build > Run or click to run the Hello World example that you just built.

Note that the Application Builder toolbar commands are also available on the Works > Build menu.
