ANSI Common Lisp 7 Objects 7.7 Dictionary of Objects
||Standard Generic Function
instance &rest initargs &key &allow-other-keys
- Method Signatures:
(instance standard-object) &rest initargs
- Arguments and Values:
instance - an object.
initargs - a defaulted initialization argument list.
Called by make-instance to initialize a newly created instance.
The generic function is called with the new instance
and the defaulted initialization argument list.
The system-supplied primary method on initialize-instance
initializes the slots of the instance with values according
to the initargs and the :initform forms of the slots.
It does this by calling the generic function shared-initialize
with the following arguments: the instance, t (this indicates
that all slots for which no initialization arguments are provided
should be initialized according to their :initform forms), and
Programmers can define methods for initialize-instance to
specify actions to be taken when an instance is initialized. If only
after methods are defined, they will be run after the
system-supplied primary method for initialization and therefore will
not interfere with the default behavior of initialize-instance.
