receive-value

Arguments: topic item value-string

This generic function is invoked when an application "pokes" a value to the lisp DDE server. You may write methods on this generic function to process the poked values as needed. If you consider the value to be "accepted" by your lisp application, then you should write the method to return true, or else nil to tell the client that you have rejected the poked information.

The default receive-value method for all topics interprets the item argument as a lisp symbol in the current package, and sets its value to be a lisp object that is read from the value-string passed in.

See dde.htm for information about DDE support.
