No, it's what we want for our system. We want everyone who builds our system to get this behavior reliably.

If so, a simple (let ((asdf:*compile-file-failure-behaviour* :warn)) (asdf:load-system "my system"))will suffice. Alternatively, you could put something like this in the .asd file: (defmethod operate :around ((operation load-op) (system (asdf:find- system "my-system"))) (let ((asdf:*compile-file-failure-behaviour* :warn)) (call-next-method)))The above most emphatically *has not been tested*, so it might be wrong.I *think* if the top-level operation you use is load-op, this should work. Alternatively, you might want to replace (operation load-op) with just (operation operation) (and add a (declare (ignorable operation)))Cheers, r On 9 Mar 2018, at 16:12, Mark H.
