Subject: Re: Which one, Lisp or Scheme? From: Erik Naggum <firstname.lastname@example.org> Date: 1997/01/26 Newsgroups: comp.lang.lisp,comp.lang.scheme Message-ID: <email@example.com> * Juergen Nickelsen | cl.el does not turn Emacs Lisp into a CLtL1 Lisp. It does provide some | of the convenience functions like caadr, backquote and comma (but as | macros, not reader macros, like in "(` (3 4 (, (+ 5 6)) 7)))", and some | other. I'm getting _real_ sick and tired of old prejudice against various Lisps. next time, check your facts with a recent Emacs. the backquote package was completely rewritten 1994-03-06. that's nearly three years ago! the Lisp reader now accepts both the old and the new style equally well. *sigh* #\Erik -- 1,3,7-trimethylxanthine -- a basic ingredient in quality software.
