Subject: not so crippled Allegro CL Lite 5.0 From: Erik Naggum <email@example.com> Date: 1999/02/06 Newsgroups: comp.lang.lisp Message-ID: <firstname.lastname@example.org> sometimes reading the manuals can yield the strangest things. looking for something entirely different, the function EXCL:LOAD-COMPILED came up, and it looked kind of strange, so in case those who have complained vociferously about the lack of COMPILE-FILE in the Windows demo version of Allegro CL, the Lite edition, would be pacified by the existence of this function, here's the documentation: Compiles and loads the file specified by the filename argument but does not write a fasl file. This function is intended for use with certain trial versions of Allegro CL in which COMPILE-FILE (and friends) are disabled. This function takes a filename and any number of keys that are appropriate for COMPILE-FILE. Users who have access to COMPILE-FILE need not use this function. [ this has been a public service announcement. ] #:Erik -- Y2K conversion simplified: Januark, Februark, March, April, Mak, June, Julk, August, September, October, November, December.
