All Manuals > LispWorks Delivery User Guide > 5 Keywords to the Delivery Function > 5.2 Alphabetical list of deliver keywords




Default value: nil

This keyword takes a list of packages to be retained. All packages in the list are kept in the delivered image, regardless of the values of the :smash-packages and :delete-packages keywords.

If :packages-to-keep is :all, then the two variables above are set to nil. See also Coping with intern and find-symbol at run time.

Note: Other keywords push packages onto the :packages-to-keep list.

Note: When you keep a package by :packages-to-keep, this does not cause that package's symbols to be kept. To retain symbols, see Ensuring that symbols are kept.
