11.5.1 The LispWorks image

The supplied LispWorks image is named according to the operating system and platform for which it is built, and the LispWorks version number. The format is:

lispworks-< version number >-< OS code >

Thus, an image named lispworks-6-0-0-sparc-solaris is the LispWorks 6.0 image for use on Sun Sparc (32-bit) Solaris machines.

There may be several images on the CD-ROM, one for each of the architectures LispWorks can run on.

As noted in Considerations to be made before extracting product files, once installed, the basic executable Lisp image can be placed somewhere in the UNIX file system likely to be on its users' search path. A suitable place might be /usr/local/bin/lispworks .
