Subject: Re: I don't understand Lisp From: Erik Naggum <firstname.lastname@example.org> Date: 1998/09/21 Newsgroups: comp.lang.lisp Message-ID: <email@example.com> * Donald Fisk <firstname.lastname@example.org> | String processing is, IMO, one of Lisp's weak points, but it's no worse | than most other languages. what is it that is so weak? I find it immensely useful that "string operations" in other languages actually work on _sequences_ in Common Lisp. on the other hand, that sometimes does make them harder to find when you look specifically for string operations, and perhaps more so when you need a few keyword arguments to get what you really want. #:Erik -- ATTENTION, all abducting aliens! you DON'T need to RETURN them!
