Having compiled the program, the next step is to attempt delivery, where you will load the compiled file in a fresh LispWorks session.
Programs are delivered with the function
. This function takes three mandatory arguments. There are also many optional keyword arguments to help Delivery make the smallest image possible.
You can read more about this function in Delivering your Application. Keywords to the Delivery Function, describes all the optional keywords available.
In this example, we use just one keyword, and of course we provide the mandatory arguments. These are:
Continuing with the example:
deliver.lisp) that compiles and loads the program, and then calls
(example-compile-file "delivery/hello/hello" :load t)
"configuration/macos-application-bundle" :load t)
;; Do not copy Lisp Source File
;; association from LispWorks.app
lispworks-5-1-0-x86-win32.exe -build deliver.lisp
On UNIX, Linux or FreeBSD type the following into a shell:
% lispworks-5-1-0-x86-linux -build deliver.lisp
Note: the image name varies between the supported platforms.
On Mac OS X, use Terminal.app. Ensure you're in the directory of the image first:
% cd "/Applications/LispWorks 5.1/LispWorks.app/Contents/MacOS"
% lispworks-5-1-0-macos-universal -build deliver.lisp
If you want to see the output, you can redirect the output with
to a file or use
, if it works on your system.
