Allegro CL version 9.0
This page is new in 9.0.


Arguments: ide-configuration

If the value of this IDE configuration option is true, then compiling a project or using one of the file compiling and loading functions on the File menu (except when in the editor) will pass :utf8 as the external-format argument to compile-file or load. Otherwise :default will be passed.

This variable has no effect when using the File menu commands on an editor buffer, or when doing an incremental compilation in the editor. In those cases, the external format that was determined for the file when loading it into the editor will be used for compilation. (That may depend on the value of the load-utf8-if-no-bom option. See also external-format-for-saved-files.)

This variable has no effect if :utf8 is the default external format in the current environment.

The initial value is nil, for backward compatibility with source code that conatins Latin1 characters, though switching to UTF8 would allow characters of any language in source code, including characters of multiple languages in the same application.

This option appears as a check box widget on the IDE 2 tab of Options dialog displayed by the Tools | Options.
