[LISPWORKS][Common Lisp HyperSpec (TM)] [Previous][Up][Next] Associating a Restart with a Condition

A restart can be ``associated with'' a condition explicitly by with-condition-restarts, or implicitly by restart-case. Such an assocation has dynamic extent.

A single restart may be associated with several conditions at the same time. A single condition may have several associated restarts at the same time.

Active restarts associated with a particular condition can be detected by calling a function such as find-restart, supplying that condition as the condition argument. Active restarts can also be detected without regard to any associated condition by calling such a function without a condition argument, or by supplying a value of nil for such an argument.

The following X3J13 cleanup issue, not part of the specification, applies to this section:
