Subject: Re: newbie: please don't smash my case From: Erik Naggum <firstname.lastname@example.org> Date: 2000/07/07 Newsgroups: comp.lang.lisp Message-ID: <email@example.com> * Simon Brooke <firstname.lastname@example.org> | Errr... this needs a bit of expansion. Symbols in Common LISP are | case-insensitive. Common LISP is the most prevelent LISP in use these | days, but that doesn't make it the only one. Symbols in InterLISP and | Portable Standard LISP, for example, are case sensitive. Wrong. Stop confusing the reader with the symbol! | Like the separation of function and value cells, it's a feature of | Common LISP we're stuck with now, but which I don't think anyone any | longer seriously defends. What!? Are you saying that YOU THINK the existence of function and value cells in symbols is as stupid as upper-case symbol names? If so, are you insane, trolling, stupid, or another Scheme bigot? #:Erik -- If this is not what you expected, please alter your expectations.
