There are a number of files that contain configuration and initialization information:
config/configure.lispcontains many default configuration settings. You can create a customized copy of this file when you install LispWorks, as described in the LispWorks Release Notes and Installation Guide .
config/key-binds.lispgives the default editor key bindings for Emacs emulation.
config/mac-key-binds.lispgives the editor key bindings for Mac OS editor emulation, if supported on your platform.
config/msw-key-binds.lispgives the editor key bindings for Microsoft Windows editor emulation, if supported on your platform.
config/siteinit.lispis the default site initialization file. The distributed file loads any supplied patches.
.lispworksin your home directory, although you can change its name and location (see "Setting Preferences" in the LispWorks IDE User Guide ).
The default location of your home directory varies on Unix systems, but it is typically something like
/home. On Windows, the directory is constructed from the environment variables HOMEDRIVE and HOMEPATH The directory itself has the same name as your user name, so if you log on as
john, your home directory might be
/home/john on Unix systems or something like
C:\Users\john on Windows 8.
A sample personal initialization file, the LispWorks file
config/a-dot-lispworks.lisp, is supplied. You should created a customized copy of this file when you install LispWorks, as described in the
