Allegro CL version 8.2
This page is new in 8.2.


Arguments: ide-configuration

This IDE configuration option specifies whether commands such as Tools | Incremental Compile and Tools | Incremental Evaluation will read source code in the correct package even when the editor buffer contains multiple in-package forms for different packages. This takes somewhat more time to locate the in-package form that is associated with an individual definition that is being compiled or evaluated, but is needed when a buffer uses multiple packages. The extra time may be substantial for a very large buffer.

The default value is true, so that the correct package is always used. If you usually edit very large files that each use only a single package, then you may want to set this option to nil to eliminate a delay with searching for multiple in-package forms.

This option can be found on the Editor tab of the Options dialog, and could be set programmatically with a form like this one:

(setf (ide:handle-multiple-packages-in-buffer
        (configuration ide:*ide-system*))
