*starting-ide*

Use of this variable is deprecated in favor of the more generally useful variable *ide-is-running*. (It is currently still set as described though.)

A thread that calls start-ide can know that the IDE has finished starting up when this variable has been set to nil sometime after start-ide returns.

The function start-ide sets this variable to t and then returns a new "IDE GUI" thread. The IDE GUI thread proceeds to start up the IDE, and then sets this variable to nil when the IDE is fully up.

See About IDE startup in cgide.htm for more information on IDE startup.

In releases prior to 7.0, the symbol naming this variable was in the common-graphics package.
