There are three ways to make a LispWorks executable start multiprocessing on startup.
1. Use the
command line argument
2. Save an image which starts multiprocessing by doing
3. Use delivery to create the executable and pass the argument
to deliver. The delivery function will be called automatically in a new process. See the
LispWorks Delivery User Guide
for more details.
LispWorks dynamic libraries always start multiprocessing on startup. See Multiprocessing in a dynamic library for more information.
In all cases, *initial-processes* can be used to control which processes are created on startup, as described in Running your own processes on startup.
Note: On Windows, Linux, x86/x64 Solaris, FreeBSD and Mac OS X you cannot save a LispWorks image with multiprocessing running.
