23.3 The Lisp Image

The function lisp-image-name returns the namestring of the full path of the LispWorks executable or dynamic library (DLL). For example, the directory of the image can be found using:

(pathname-location (lisp-image-name))

To create a new executable or DLL, typically after loading patches, modules and application code, use save-image or deliver.

Note: Microsoft Windows supports Long and Short forms of paths. You may need to convert a namestring using long-namestring or short-namestring.
