LispWorks® User Guide and Reference Manual

Version 8.0

This manual describes the main programmatic interface to LispWorks, including some of the different libraries supplied for use in your source code. Note that it does not describe the Foreign Language Interface or the CAPI. Details about these libraries can be found in the LispWorks Foreign Language Interface User Guide and Reference Manual and the CAPI User Guide and Reference Manual respectively.

This manual also contains reference pages for all symbols in LispWorks except those in the CAPI, GP, COLOR, FLI , COM, OBJC, COCOA and EDITOR packages. It also documents the Java interface, and the C functions available in a LispWorks dynamic library.
