3.3.1 Runtime Options
- Run the specified Lisp core file instead of the default. Note that if
the Lisp core file is a user-created core file, it may run a
nonstandard toplevel which does not recognize the standard toplevel
- Size of the dynamic space reserved on startup in megabytes. Default
value is platform dependent.
- Size of control stack reserved for each thread in megabytes. Default
value is 2.
- Suppress the printing of any banner or other informational message at
startup. This makes it easier to write Lisp programs which work
cleanly in Unix pipelines. See also the
- Disable the low-level debugger. Only effective if SBCL is compiled
- There are some dangerous low level errors (for instance, control stack
exhausted, memory fault) that (or whose handlers) can corrupt the
image. By default SBCL prints a warning, then tries to continue and
handle the error in Lisp, but this will not always work and SBCL may
malfunction or even hang. With this option, upon encountering such an
error SBCL will invoke ldb (if present and enabled) or else exit.
- As a runtime option this is equivalent to
--script filename. See the
--script as a toplevel option below.
- Print some basic information about SBCL, then exit.
- Print SBCL's version information, then exit.
In the future, runtime options may be added to control behaviour such
as lazy allocation of memory.
Runtime options, including any –end-runtime-options option, are
stripped out of the command line before the Lisp toplevel logic gets a
chance to see it.
