  EXCL is the package name for Franz Inc's Extended Common Lisp, one of the
  packages in Allegro CL.  a function with similar use and purpose probably
  exists in most other full-featured Common Lisps, but it's not useful to
  refer to it by the name in Allegro CL.

  that said, for what purpose do you need DUMPLISP?  perhaps your needs can
  be accomodated without using that particular technique.

  the reason DUMPLISP is not in the Trial Edition is that Franz Inc sells a
  product that offers it and there's gotta be some features that are
  missing in a free version, right?  why not approach them and ask about
  how to accomplish whatever you want to do?  seems to me like mail to would be a good first shot at this.
