*service-name*

The value of this variable is the default value of the name argument to open-server, which determines the service name that DDE clients must specify to connect with the Lisp DDE server opened by open-server. The initial value is :allegro, meaning that the client should specify the service name as the string "allegro".

Compatibility note: Starting with release 6.2, this variable is no longer automatically modified to match the service name that was most recently passed to open-server. You may still modify the value of this variable to change the global default for a service name, but to retrieve the service name that is actually being used by a particular Lisp process, you must call the function service-name instead.
