Subject: Re: Need help with Allegro match-regexp From: Erik Naggum <firstname.lastname@example.org> Date: 2000/08/10 Newsgroups: comp.lang.lisp Message-ID: <email@example.com> * Charlie Benton <firstname.lastname@example.org> | Let's say I want to extract the first group from the regular expression | "author: \\(\\w+\\);". Documentation told me that if I set the :return | argument to :string then match-regexp would return a list where the | first group would be the 3rd member. Could you quote that documentation, please? And didn't you just post this question a few days ago? #:Erik -- If this is not what you expected, please alter your expectations.
