13.2.9 Internal server processes

Some processes are now marked as "internal server" which means they respond to requests for work from other processes. The main effect of this is that if the only processes that are remain are "internal servers", nothing is going to happen, so LispWorks quits.

For more information see the function mp:process-run-function and the new functions mp:process-internal-server-p and mp:any-other-non-internal-server-process-p .

Note: On Windows, com:server-can-exit-p tests for internal servers.
