Title: Code not automatically compiled

ID: 17025

Description:
LispWorks does not automatically compile code when you run it.

Some Lisp implementations such as MCL (Macintosh Common Lisp) do compile code automatically.

So if your program performs well on MCL but performs badly on LispWorks, ensure that
you compile the code explicitly. Do this using
  • the Common Lisp functions compile or compile-file, or
  • a menu command in the Common LispWorks IDE such as Buffer > Compile

    Possible symptoms include:
  • code running slowly
  • stack overflow where you expected tail recursion to be eliminated
