Allegro CL version 8.1
New since 8.1 release.

globalq

Arguments: symbol

Because (system:global-symbol-value 'xxx) is such a common place for shared data operations, we've introduced a macro to make the source a little easier to read and write. (globalq x) is a macro form that expands to (system:global-symbol-value 'x) for any symbol x.

This macro was added by a patch released in July, 2009. This macro will not be defined if that patch has not been installed. See sys:update-allegro for information on downloading patches.

See smp.htm and multiprocessing.htm for more information on this macro and on multiprocessing.
