*default-external-format*

This variable is not supported. Setting it has no effect. The default for the external-format argument of functions like open where no specific value is specified as the default is the value of (locale-external-format *locale*) (see *locale* and locale-external-format).

General information on international character set support in Allegro CL is in iacl.htm.

This variable has been incorrectly documented for a while as providing the default for the external-format argument to relevant functions like open. This iss incorrect. The correct documentation is above.
