To create a new instance of any GOOPS class, use the generic function
make-instance, passing the required class and any
appropriate instance initialization arguments as keyword and value
pairs. Note that
make-instances are aliases for
each other - their behaviour is identical.
In theory, initargs can have any structure that is understood by
whatever methods get applied when the
initialize generic function
is applied to the newly allocated instance.
In practice, specialized
initialize methods would normally call
(next-method), and so eventually the standard GOOPS
initialize methods are applied. These methods expect
initargs to be a list with an even number of elements, where
even-numbered elements (counting from zero) are keywords and
odd-numbered elements are the corresponding values.
GOOPS processes initialization argument keywords automatically for slots
whose definition includes the
#:init-keyword option (see section init-keyword). Other keyword value pairs can only be
processed by an
initialize method that is specialized for the new
instance's class. Any unprocessed keyword value pairs are ignored.
