13.12.1 Running an executable Automation server

COM now has several functions which simplify running an executable Automation server. In typical cases, you can simply use com:automation-server-main as the function argument in deliver or the restart-function argument in save-image . For more complicated cases, com:automation-server-main takes keywords that modify its behavior, and the underlying functionality is also available and can be used directly: com:automation-server-top-loop , com:set-automation-server-exit-delay and com:automation-server-command-line-action .

Also there are two new predicates for testing whether a COM server is in use or can exit: com:server-in-use-p and com:server-can-exit-p .
