LispWorks IDE User Guide > 5 Session Saving


5.1 What session saving does

When you save a session, LispWorks performs the following three steps:

  1. Closing all windows and stopping multiprocessing.
  2. Saving an image. On Mac OS X this also creates an application bundle.
  3. Restarting the LispWorks IDE and all of its windows.

If a saved session is run later, then it will redo the last step above, but see What is saved and what is not saved for restrictions.

Sessions are stored on disk as LispWorks images, by default within your personal application support folder (the exact directory varies between operating systems).
