Subject: Re: Read macro blues: #+ From: Erik Naggum <email@example.com> Date: 1999/01/27 Newsgroups: comp.lang.lisp.franz,comp.lang.lisp Message-ID: <firstname.lastname@example.org> * Paul.Meurer@hit.uib.no (Paul Meurer) | I have exactly the same problem with #_ (from MCL) in LispWorks. The | reason is probably that the reader goes through the commented-out text to | find the end of the comment, where it encounters #_ and barks. #+ is not a comment. #|...|# is a comment. there reason it does not work is there is no telling what a reader macro will do in the normal case that is supposed to be skipped if there is no code to dispatch to. #:Erik -- SIGTHTBABW: a signal sent from Unix to its programmers at random intervals to make them remember that There Has To Be A Better Way.
