 Project:          slippery chicken (algorithmic composition)

 Purpose:          Definition of the user-changeable configuration data and
                   globals for internal programme use. See top of cmn.lsp and
                   osc-sc-bsd.lsp for a few more globals relevant to
                   functionality in their respective packages.

globals/+slippery-chicken-config-data+ [ Global Parameters ]

[ Top ] [ Global Parameters ]


 A global to hold various user-settable configuration settings.  Use e.g. 
 (set-sc-config 'default-dir "~/Desktop") or (get-sc-config 'default-dir) to
 set or query the settings.
