Default value: nil

A string naming a file containing an image to be displayed when the application starts.

On Microsoft Windows, the image needs to be in Windows Bitmap format and must be Indexed Color rather than RGB color.

On Cocoa and Motif, the image can be in any format supported by Graphics Ports, and the file will be read as if by gp:read-external-image . See the "Working with images" section in the LispWorks CAPI User Guide for details.

On Windows the user can dismiss the startup screen by clicking on it. It can be dismissed programmatically by calling win32:dismiss-splash-screen - see the LispWorks Reference Manual for details.

The value nil means no bitmap is displayed.
