Package: excl

The value of this variable is the keyword denoting the current case mode. The value of this variable is changed by set-case-mode and should not be set in any other way. Its initial value depends on how Lisp was installed. Some pre-built images (mlisp and mlisp8) use :case-sensitive-lower and others (alisp and alisp8) use :case-insensitive-upper. The value may also be specified whne an image is built using build-lisp-image or generate-application.

See case.htm for general information on case in Allegro CL.

The documentation is described in introduction.htm and the index is in index.htm.
