Subject: Re: princ & *print-readably* From: Erik Naggum <email@example.com> Date: 1998/03/24 Newsgroups: comp.lang.lisp Message-ID: <firstname.lastname@example.org> * Sam Steingold <email@example.com> | what should (let ((*print-readably* t)) (princ "zz")) print? "zz" or zz? "PRINC is just like PRIN1 except that the output has no escape characters. It binds *PRINT-ESCAPE* to false and *PRINT-READABLY* to false." that's quoted from the HyperSpec (with symbol names upcased by me). #:Erik -- religious cult update in light of new scientific discoveries: "when we cannot go to the comet, the comet must come to us."
