Re: Periodic launching

        Reply to:   RE>>Periodic launching
I wanted to use periodic launching for the following task: once an hour
(or less), build a database from files that some external agent
regularly modifies, and save yourself out as an application that others
can launch and use as an OODB.  The input files are large enough that I
would rather create a new copy of the database/application each time
rather than try to read it into the same Lisp image.  Admittedly, this
is a hack, but the hack requires a timer mechanism external to Lisp to
make it work.  Of course, the timer mechanism could be another Lisp
image, but QuicKeys seems to be just the right thing -- and does a lot
of other neat stuff.
