Having compiled the program, the next step is to attempt delivery using the compiled file.
Programs are delivered with the function
deliver . This function takes three mandatory arguments. There are also many optional keyword arguments to help Delivery make the smallest image possible.
You can read more about this function in Delivering your Application. Keywords to the Delivery Function, describes all the optional keywords available.
In this example, we do not use any of them, but just provide the mandatory arguments. They are:
This is the first function called when the application is run.
This is an integer in the range 0 to 5. It controls how much work is done to make the image smaller during delivery. At level 0, little effort is put into making a smaller image, while at level 5 a variety of strategies are employed.
Continuing with the example:
deliver.lisp ) that loads the program and then call
(deliver 'hello-world "hello" 5 :interface :capi)
lispworks-4200.exe -init deliver.lisp
On UNIX or Linux, type the following into a shell:
unix% lispworks -init deliver.lisp
If you want to see the output, you can redirect the output with
> to a file or use
| , if it works on your system.
hello on UNIX and
hello.exe on Windows.
