Subject: Re: global variables when making executables in Allegro? From: Erik Naggum <firstname.lastname@example.org> Date: 2000/05/23 Newsgroups: comp.lang.lisp Message-ID: <email@example.com> * Raul Valdes-Perez | If you do a little experiment, like (setq a 1) followed by dumping | with generate-application, then on re-starting "a" doesn't have the | value. How then can I get expensively-computed values to be | remembered in a generate-application dump? You start by reading the manual. Have you done that? My guess is you haven't even tried, as that "experiment" of yours is pointless. If you think I'm _really_ saying "you shouldn't be doing that if you don't know what you're doing", and that this is arrogant, let me counter by _actually_ saying that people who don't _want_ to know what they are doing really tick me off, because it's a type of arrogance that has become very popular with easy-to-use computers: Ignorance with an attitude. #:Erik -- If this is not what you expected, please alter your expectations.
