Subject: Re: Does GNU Common Lisp include the complete "loop" facility? From: Erik Naggum <firstname.lastname@example.org> Date: 1995/11/04 Newsgroups: comp.lang.lisp Message-ID: <19951104T142756Z@naggum.no> [Dave Stallard] | Does anyone know if GCL 2.1 include the complete "loop" facility of | Common Lisp? I mean the real magilla with all the keywords ("when", | "collect", "thereis" etc. etc.) that wasn't present in the first (c. | 1984) edition of the language. I ask because the GCL build I made | didn't seem to know about it, and the documentation only refers to | "loop" in its original incarnation as a simple repeat mechanism from | which an explicit return is required. it's called "sloop" in GCL. (use-package :sloop) then (sloop ...). I don't know how complete it is, but it seems somewhat different. | The hardcopy "GNU's Bulletin" of June 1995 says that GCL "supports the | CLtL1 specification but is moving towards the proposed ANSI definition". | If "CLtL1" means "1984" I suppose I am out of luck for the time being. "CLtL1" and "CLtL2" stand for Guy Steele's Common Lisp the Language, editions 1 (published 1984) and 2 (published 1990), respectively. ANSI Common Lisp was published in January 1995. #<Erik 3024484076> -- a good picture may well be worth a thousand words, but on the WWW, even bad imagemaps cost tens of thousands of words.
