find-composed-external-format

Arguments: external-format1 external-format2

external-format1 should be either a macro-based composing external-format or an encapsulated-based composing external-format. The function returns the composition of external-format1 with external-format2.

If external-format1 is a macro-based composing external-format, then if external-format2 is in runtime mode (i.e., its defining macros have been removed), an attempt is made to reload external-format2's original definition through the find-external-format autoload mechanism in order to complete the composition. If the autoload fails, then the function signals an error.

See also compose-external-formats. See iacl.htm for more information on international character support in Allegro CL.
