| | I saw the messages about using locks when interacting with the screen. Could
| | someone provide a short snippet of code showing how one would use those
| | unexported clim calls initial-lock-values and with-lockf?
| I wrote the question to which locks were the answer. I had the same
| problem you do. Instead of using Clim locks, I used the locks in
| Allegro's multi-processing system. Since you have a multi-process
| application, your lisp must have some sort of lock mechanism. My code
| is very simple. ...
| This doesn't do you any good for CLIM 1.0/1.1, but you should use
| CLIM-SYS:MAKE-LOCK and CLIM-SYS:WITH-LOCK-HELD in CLIM 2.0, since
| they are portable across all platforms that implement CLIM.
My suggestion doesn't do you any good for CLIM 1.0/1.1
1) Since it protects the processes from accessing the screen
simultaneously, why doesn't it do me any good?
2) I'm using CLIM 1.1, and I still don't know what calls to use. I
can't find any documentation in the CLIM 1.0 manual, the only one I
have. What are they?
