7.4 File associations for a Windows application

To create an assocation between your LispWorks for Windows application and files with a specified type (file extension), create a DDE server in Lisp and register the file types in Windows.

There is an example of this (for the LispWorks IDE) in examples/dde/lispworks-ide.lisp , but the technique is the same for any file extension.
