Gets or sets a registry path for use with your software.
product-registry-path product => path-string
(setf product-registry-path) path product => path
A Lisp object.
The path as a string or a list of strings.
The path as a string.
product-registry-path returns the registry subpath defined for the product denoted by product, as a string.
(setf product-registry-path) sets the registry subpath for the product denoted by product.
If path is a string it can contain backslash
\ or forward slash
/ as directory separators - these are translated internally to the separator appropriate for the system. Note that any backslash will need escaping (with another backslash) if you input the string value via the Lisp reader.
If path is a list of strings, then it is interpreted like the directory component of a pathname.
This registry subpath is used when reading and storing user preferences with user-preference.
Note that while product can be any Lisp object, values of product are compared by
eq, so you should use keywords.
To store CAPI window geometries under the registry path for your product, see the entry for
capi:top-level-interface-geometry-key. in the
CAPI User Guide and Reference Manual
(setf (sys:product-registry-path :deep-thought)
(list "Deep Thought" "1.0"))
