Allegro CL version 8.1
New since 8.1 release.


Arguments: &body body

with-delayed-interrupts is the replacement for without-interrupts. (Note that without-interrupts continues to be supported.) It evaluates and compiles exactly as without-interrupts did. In an SMP lisp it provides no cross-process protection of shared objects. Its entire purpose in that environment is to protect blocks of code that need to run to completion even in the face of timeouts and possible process-interrupt calls from other processes. body will complete before the executing process handles any signals accumulated by the low-level asynchronous signal handler and before responding to process-interrupt requests.

This macro was added by a patch released in July, 2009. This macro will not be defined if that patch has not been installed. See sys:update-allegro for information on downloading patches.

See smp.htm and multiprocessing.htm for more information on this macro and on multiprocessing.
