From: Erik Naggum <email@example.com> Date: 1998/08/27 Newsgroups: comp.lang.lisp Message-ID: <firstname.lastname@example.org> * Barry Margolin <email@example.com> | Note that Common Lisp permits implementations to reorder argument | processing based on the mathematical associativity rules, even though the | computer operations are not necessarily associative.
