load-system

Arguments: system &key interpreted compile no-warn reload silent simulate include-components module-keys

This generic function loads system into the current environment. This function returns t if any actions are necessary to bring system up-to-date. If no actions are necessary, then this function returns nil.

The value of the interpreted keyword argument can be t or :interpreted :compile :no-warn :reload :silent :simulate :include-components :module-keys. The default value is nil. t means to load the source file of each module rather than the product file.

The value of the compile keyword argument can be t or nil. The default value is nil. t means to compile the source file before loading the product file. If the value of the :interpreted keyword argument is true, the value of the :compile argument is ignored.

The value of the no-warn keyword argument can be t or nil. Its default value is nil. t means do not print warnings of any kind when loading a system.

The value of the reload keyword argument can be t or nil. Its default value is nil. t means reload all the files even if the most up-to-date version has been previously loaded.

The value of the silent keyword argument can be t or nil. Its default value is nil. t means do not print anything while performing the operation. A true value of simulate overrides :silent t. If the value of this keyword argument is t, then the functionality is similar to the Unix command make -s.

The value of the simulate keyword argument can be t or nil. t means print the list of actions that would be taken if the operations were to be performed at this time, but do not actually perform the operations. If the value of this keyword argument is t, then the functionality is similar to make -n.

The value of the include-components keyword argument can be t or nil. The default value is t, which means perform a load-system operation on all component systems of system. A value of nil means ignore component systems.

The value of the module-keys keyword should be a list of keywords and arguments to be passed as a keyword list to the load-module-action method for each module-group.

Although the home package of the symbol naimg this operator is the excl package, it is also exported from the defsystem package.
