Subject: Re: Lisp & SICP From: Erik Naggum <email@example.com> Date: 2000/05/15 Newsgroups: comp.lang.lisp Message-ID: <firstname.lastname@example.org> * John Clonts -> Andrew Cooke | I think I understand what you mean that scheme has the single | namespace where lisp has various namespaces. But, why does it | follow that "hence no need for apply etc"? He's seriously confused. It's _funcall_ that's missing from Scheme. It obviously still needs, and has, apply, which is why omitting funcall is just plain silly. (Note to Scheme zealots: Just because you can define it doesn't mean the _language_ has it. Thank you.) #:Erik -- If this is not what you expected, please alter your expectations.
