This chapter describes the process of delivering a completed application.
The first part of the delivery process is to make a standalone version of your application, that runs without assistance from LispWorks. After that, you may want to look into making your program smaller and more efficient.
Delivering a standalone application, and much of the work in making it smaller and faster, is very simple and is accomplished by running a simple script. However, fine-tuning the delivery process to make the application as small and as fast as possible is a more involved process that may require trial-and-error work.
A call to the function deliver starts the delivery process. A variety of arguments control the effects of delivery. A few of the keywords are introduced below in The delivery function: deliver and all are documented fully in Keywords to the Delivery Function.
