Re: .init.cl loading? Flavors?

I am unaware of any file named "init.cl" that is distributed with
MCL 2.0. Is it in one of the folders of user contributed code on
the CD? Daniel Ranson was right about the name needing to be
"init.lisp" or "init.fasl". One thing he didn't mention is
that the default for the :INIT-FILE argument to SAVE-APPLICATION is
NIL, e.g. no init file. Hence, if you want your saved application to
look for an init file, you should specify "INIT" as the value of
the :INIT-FILE parameter.

APDA used to sell a Flavors package that worked with 1.3.2. I believe
Franz was the original source of that package. I don't believe APDA sells
it any more as it doesn't work (as is) with MCL 2.0. Harvey Alcabes (alcabes@applelink.apple.com) may be able to find you a copy or
you may be able to get one from Franz.
