Subject: Re: Read-time _apply_: an external representation for any value From: Erik Naggum <firstname.lastname@example.org> Date: 1999/04/14 Newsgroups: comp.lang.scheme,comp.lang.lisp Message-ID: <email@example.com> * Vassil Nikolov <firstname.lastname@example.org> | (If one wanted to write obfuscated Lisp, one could define the #! reader | to do different things depending on whether the character after the '!' | is a slash, or whether the character after the extended token following | the #! is a space or a left parenthesis... Whose is the law that says | that every problem has a perverse solution?) I think the world is ready for LERP (Lisp Enhanced by Random Perversion), not unlike the Perversion Excused by Random Lispiness already accepted. #:Erik -- environmentalists are much too concerned with planet earth. their geocentric attitude prevents them from seeing the greater picture -- lots of planets are much worse off than earth is.
