See delivery.htm for a complete description of the issues and functionality associated with this function. Note that this function is only available in Enterprise versions of Allegro CL.

This function writes a collection of files to destination-directory. In theory, all the files needed to deliver an application will be in that directory when generate-application completes (but you should test that carefully).

Note that this function calls build-lisp-image and like build-lisp-image, this function does not inherit from the currently running image (except for the defaults for certain arguments).

Note on including SSL in the application. A generated application that includes the :ssl module will link at run time to the OpenSSL version determined by the same logic used when (require :ssl) is called initially. In other words, the same environment variables and Lisp variables will affect the behavior. See The Allegro CL SSL API in socket.htm.

The required arguments:

The keyword arguments:

The function generate-executable is a wrapper for generate-application, producing an application whose input is the command-line arguments. It can be used either as a quick way to create an application, or as an example of using generate-application. The source for generate-executable can be found in the file [allegro cl dir]/src/
