LispWorks Release Notes and Installation Guide > 8 Configuration on Mac OS X


8.4 Saving and testing the configured image

It is not usually necessary to save an image merely to preload patches and your configuration, because these load very quickly on modern machines.

However, if you want to save an image to reduce startup time for a complex configuration (such as large application code) or to save a non-windowing image, then proceed as described in this section.

8.4.1 Create a configuration file

8.4.2 Create and use a save-image script

8.4.3 What to do if no image is saved

8.4.4 Testing the newly saved image

8.4.5 Saving a non-windowing image
