2.2 Delivering the program

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 deliver. This function takes three mandatory arguments. There are also many optional keyword arguments to help Delivery make the smallest image possible, and also control some aspects of the behavior of the runtime that is created.

You can read more about the deliver function in Delivering your Application.

Keywords to the Delivery Function describes all the optional keyword arguments available.

In this example, we use just one of the optional keyword arguments, and of course we provide the mandatory arguments. These are:

You can deliver and run the application in two ways: either use the LispWorks IDE, or use a command shell. This means a DOS command window (on Microsoft Windows), (Mac OS X) or a shell (Unix/Linux etc).
