Description: Displaying Lisp files by double-clicking in Windows Explorer

Suppose you wish to associate '.lisp' files with LispWorks so that opening the file in the Windows Explorer displays it in a LispWorks Editor buffer. Use LispWorks' -edit command line argument which starts an Editor with the next argument as the filename.

A. First, make sure you have downloaded and installed the latest patch bundle from our website.

B. Follow the instructions in the example file ide/lispworks-ide.lisp which you will find in the examples subdirectory of your LispWorks installation.

C. You may like to associate an icon with .lisp files too; do this by View > Options > File Types > Edit > Change Icon in the Explorer.
