project-parent-directory

Arguments: ide-configuration

Returns a directory that will be used when you create a new project and are asked to specify a default directory for the project's source code. This parent directory will initially be selected in the directory-choosing dialog as the suggested parent directory for the new project's directory.

Typically, this value is set only once when creating a new project for the first time. At that time, the directory-choosing dialog asks for this default parent directory for all future projects, and the path is stored with the other configuration options in a prefs.cl file. If the value needs to be changed later, the setf of this function may be called to do so.

It is recommended that all project code be placed outside of any particular Allegro installation, so that it can remain there when installing a new version of Allegro and perhaps uninstalling older versions.

Example

(setf (project-parent-directory (configuration *ide-system*))
      "c:/allegro-projects/")
