service-name

Arguments: dde-info

If a DDE server is currently running in the Lisp process associated with dde-info, returns the DDE service name that DDE client programs must use to connect with that DDE server. Returns nil if open-server has never been called in that process. dde-info must be an instance of dde-info

This service name is determined by the name argument to the most recent call to open-server in the process of dde-info. The default value is the value of *service-name*, which is initially the symbol :allegro. This means that the DDE service name used by a DDE client program to connect to a lisp DDE server should be "allegro" by default. (The Allegro DDE facility uses symbols for service and topic names, though DDE itself uses strings.)

Call dde-info to retrieve the dde-info instance to pass to this function.

For a client-port in Lisp, the service name is known as the port-application.

To change the service-name for a Lisp DDE server process, call close-server and then call open-server with a new name argument.

See dde.htm for information about DDE support.
