*compiler-not-available-warning*

The effect of this variable depends on whether or not the image being run is a standard runtime image (with :runtime-standard on the *features* list).

Behavior when image is not a standard runtime image

If the value of this variable is true and the running Lisp image does not include the compiler, a warning will be printed whenever compile is called stating that the compiler is not available. If the value of this variable is nil, no warning will be printed.

Behavior in standard runtime images

A standard runtime image is built by generate-application or build-lisp-image with the runtime keyword argument specified :standard. (That is the default value for the argument when generate-application is called.) Such images have :runtime-standard on the *features* list. See runtime.htm.

In standard runtime images, it is an error to call compile or compile-file directly or indirectly. The value of this variable is ignored and thus does not affect whether or not an error is signaled. The condition signaled is runtime-restriction.

See compiling.htm for information on the compiler.
