Subject: Re: Overwriting Functions/Macros? From: Erik Naggum <firstname.lastname@example.org> Date: 1998/04/01 Newsgroups: comp.lang.lisp Message-ID: <email@example.com> * Marco Antoniotti | As an aside, I see also that using strings in package related functions | and macros for package names and symbol names is a *good* thing. uhm? why? using strings interferes with case massaging in the Lisp reader. the only advantage is that no new symbols are created, but using uninterned symbols or keywords (for package names) isn't _that_ much trouble, is it? #:Erik -- religious cult update in light of new scientific discoveries: "when we cannot go to the comet, the comet must come to us."
