9.5.2 Foreign callable names

In most cases foreign callable names are passed to deliver in the value of the :dll-exports keyword argument, and each of these foreign callables will be retained automatically in the delivered image.

However other foreign callables defined with a string foreign-name are liable to be shaken from the delivered image. The best approach is to use a symbol to name such foreign callables, as described under fli:define-foreign-callable in the LispWorks Foreign Language Interface User Guide and Reference Manual .
