6.1 Backend Designators
The backend argument to store, restore and with-backend
is a backend designator which can be one of.
- A backend returned by
- A symbol designating a backend (the first argument to defbackend).
6.2 Known Issues
- CLISP, OpenMCL, Allegro CL cannot store structure instances.
- Structure definitions are only supported in SBCL and CMUCL.
- Due to the fact that function's aren't fully supported CLOS Classes initfunction slot cannot be serialized.
6.3 Regarding String Serialization
Users are required to be extremely careful when serializing strings from one
lisp implementation to another since the array-element-type will be tracked
for strings and the Hyperspec does not specify an upper limit for base-chars.
This can be a problem if you serialize a simple-base-string containing wide
characters, in an implementation which specifies no limit on base-char,
to an implementation with a limit.
If you have a solution I would be happy to hear it.
