It enables you to build highly scalable, evolved systems for deployment on a wide range of Unix systems and Windows. Allegro CL has dynamic runtime behavior, including incremental compilation, automatic memory management, and macro expansion. Applications built in Allegro CL can include domain-specific extensions and are able to evolve and change while running, even without source code.
