In practice, such system-wide config files (like /etc/profile) have
the property of annoying more users than of being useful to them.
What can /etc/clisprc do that $HOME/.clisprc and saveinitmem cannot?
- If you are a democratic sysadmin or Lisp course teacher, you can
tell your users or students to create a $HOME/.clisprc containing
- If you are a fascist sysadmin, you can add this line to your users'
$HOME/.clisprc without asking them. :-)
- If you are a Linux distributor, you can add your stuff to config.lisp
before building clisp. It will then end up in the memory images
