*init-file-names*

The value of this variable should be a list of strings naming files. These files will be looked for in the users home directory on Unix and C:\ on Windows and in the current directory (the current directory on Windows is typically the directory containing the executable but see the discussion in Initialization and the sys:siteinit.cl and [.]clinit.cl files in startup.htm for precise information). The initial value of this variable is the list

(".clinit.cl" "clinit.cl")

Only one initialization file in each location is loaded. Thus, for example, if there is a file .clinit.cl in the home directory, it will be loaded (assuming init files in the home directory are loaded at all) and the clinit.cl file, if it exists, will be ignored. If there is no .clinit.cl, clinit.cl will be loaded if it is present.

If the value is nil, no initialization files will be loaded except sys:;siteinit.cl (whose loading and name are not affected by this variable).

See startup.htm, particularly section Initialization and the sys:siteinit.cl and [.]clinit.cl files, for information on reading initialization files. See also *read-init-files*.
