Next: Module Termination. Up: 7.2.3 Module Definition Previous: Source Files. Module Initialization.

Each module customizes the predefined skeleton depicted in Figure 7.1 to fulfill its particular needs. Each of the stages may be modified or overridden by individual modules using method overloading (see also Appendix A on page [*]) of the VLISP object system. Methods define how a module needs to be initialized in general (:init), for GUI operation (:init-gui), and for batch operation (:init-batch).
