Subject: Re: problem with delete From: Erik Naggum <email@example.com> Date: 03 Oct 2000 06:03:17 +0000 Newsgroups: comp.lang.lisp Message-ID: <firstname.lastname@example.org> * Frode Vatvedt Fjeld <email@example.com> | Do we agree that after the form (delete 1 foo) the exact list | structure pointed to by foo is unknown, because the implementation | may or may not destructively modify that list (in one of several | possible ways)? How could it be _unknown_? That would mean delete would have to do some weird shit to the list structure while returning the well- defined result. What are you really getting at? This subthread got derailed because you made a claim that is just plain wrong. Please ignore it, don't try to defend it, and get back to your real issue. #:Erik -- If this is not what you expected, please alter your expectations.
