This section gives some useful tips that should speed the delivery process up and make mistakes less likely.
If starting LispWorks and loading your application takes a significant amount of time, you can cut down on this startup time by saving a copy of the image when the compiled application and library code has been loaded. Use
save-image (see the
LispWorks User Guide and Reference Manual
) to do this. You then have an image that is "ready to go" for delivery as soon as it is started up.
deliver keyword :in-memory-delivery is non-nil, the delivered image is not saved to disk, but instead starts up automatically after the delivery operations are complete.
