13.5.1 “How can I customize where fasl files are stored?”

See Controlling where ASDF saves compiled files.

Note that in the past there was an add-on to ASDF called ASDF-binary-locations, developed by Gary King. That add-on has been merged into ASDF proper, then superseded by the asdf-output-translations facility.

Note that use of asdf-output-translations can interfere with one aspect of your systems — if your system uses *load-truename* to find files (e.g., if you have some data files stored with your program), then the relocation that this ASDF customization performs is likely to interfere. Use asdf:system-relative-pathname to locate a file in the source directory of some system, and use asdf:apply-output-translations to locate a file whose pathname has been translated by the facility.
