(Lisp) The Common Lisp object that serves as a symbol table. As you might therefore expect, a package maps a string to a symbol. The Lisp *package* variable defines the default package for symbols being read into the Lisp system. See the "Lisp packages" section for more details.
an object of type package.
A Common Lisp object that specifies a mapping between print name strings and symbols.
An icon that represents embedded or linked information. That information may consist of a complete file, such as a Paint bitmap, or part of a file, such as a spreadsheet cell. When you choose the package, the application used to create the object either plays the object (for example, a sound file) or opens and displays the object. If you change the original information, linked information is automatically updated. However, you must manually update embedded information. See also: embedded object; linked object; OLE
