Subject: Re: format for list printing From: Erik Naggum <firstname.lastname@example.org> Date: 1997/09/05 Newsgroups: comp.lang.lisp Message-ID: <email@example.com> * firstname.lastname@example.org | I stand in awe before the power and convenience (as well as complexity) | of the CL's format function. the next step is then to realize its many serious limitations... (do ((i 1 (1+ i)) (l <list> (cdr list))) ((endp l)) (format "~&~D. ~A" i (car l))) (loop for elt in <list> for i = 1 then (1+ i) do (format "~&~D. ~A" i elt)) (let ((i 0)) (map nil (lambda (elt) (format "~&~D. ~A" (incf i) elt)) <list>)) as for vectors (one-dimensional arrays), the changes necessary to the above code fragments are trivial. the last form actually works unchanged. #\Erik -- 404 You're better off without that file.
