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 extremely simple and can be accomplished by entering a simple form. However, fine-tuning the delivery process to make the application as small and as fast as possible is a more involved process that usually requires trial-and-error work. You should therefore allot time to a delivery phase when planning the development of your application.
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 in this chapter, but all are documented fully in Keywords to the Delivery Function.
