Using the Compiler

VLISP provides several ways to access and use the file compiler. To compile a single AutoLISP file, you can use the vlisp-compile function. To compile many AutoLISP files into a single VLX file, you can use the Make Application wizard. The vlisp-compile function and the Make Application wizard are described in this chapter.

If your application consists of a set of AutoLISP files loaded in parallel, it is recommended that you use the VLISP integrated project management facilities to compile your files. The project manager automatically recompiles files that have changed, allows you to find code segments without knowing which files contain them, and optimizes the use of function calls and local variables in the compiled files. These features are explained in detail in .
