Subject: Re: Customize Emacs Lisp reader? From: Erik Naggum <firstname.lastname@example.org> Date: 1998/07/28 Newsgroups: gnu.emacs.help,comp.lang.lisp Message-ID: <email@example.com> * Kai Grossjohann | Is it possible to customize the Emacs Lisp reader such that it is able | to read sexes containing stuff like this? yes. the Emacs Lisp reader defers to the value LOAD-READ-FUNCTION, if that is non-NIL, from the functions LOAD and EVAL-REGION. this has been used (or abused) to hack a Common Lisp reader for Emacs, but right now I can't find that package. anyway, the package "eval-reg" (distributed with Emacs) replaces a few functions with new versions that allow customization to the Emacs Lisp reader. it may be worth a shot. #:Erik -- http://www.naggum.no/spam.html is about my spam protection scheme and how to guarantee that you reach me. in brief: if you reply to a news article of mine, be sure to include an In-Reply-To or References header with the message-ID of that message in it. otherwise, you need to read that page.
