basic Windows. file management tasks such as creating
directories, copying files, and navigating through the file system
on your hard disk or network.
The Visual LISP. (VLISP) environment is introduced.
This environment provides you with editing, debugging, and other

language provided with VLISP.
There are the
following two possible execution contexts for this tutorial:
The application may be run as interpreted LISP in piecemeal
files and/or functions that are loaded into a single document,
The program code can be compiled into a VLX application,
denoted by a *.vlx executable. A VLX operates
from a self-contained namespace that can interact with the
