17 The WIN32 Package (including DDE)

This chapter describes the symbols available in the WIN32 package, including reference entries for accessing the Windows registry, and Dynamic Data Exchange (DDE).

The functions are listed in four sections: miscellaneous WIN32 symbols, the registry API, the DDE client interface, and the DDE server interface. You should use the DDE sections in conjunction with the relevant chapter in the LispWorks User Guide .

Note: this chapter applies only to LispWorks for Windows, and not the UNIX, Linux, FreeBSD or Mac OS X platforms.

Note: the WIN32 package is not a supported implementation of the Win32 API. Define your own interfaces to Windows functions as you need - see the LispWorks Foreign Language Interface User Guide and Reference Manual for details.
