Subject: Re: ACL 6.0 Trial Edition ships with non ANSI reader behavior. From: Erik Naggum <firstname.lastname@example.org> Date: 2000/11/11 Newsgroups: comp.lang.lisp Message-ID: <email@example.com> * Tim Bradshaw <firstname.lastname@example.org> | yes, the point is that readtable-case *doesn't work* in ACL's `modern' | mode! If it worked, I'd have no problem. To be fair, I posted patches that makes it work, Tim. The real patch is a replacement to set-case-mode that uses the readtable-case instead of *force-readtable-case-raw*, but a new value to readtable-case is required to retain user knowledge. I have selected :default, which uses the value of *default-readtable-case-raw*, which means you can change just one variable to make the _unmodified_ readtables use the new setting. readtable-case can be set to :default, but it always returns one of the four predefined values. All readtables start out in :default, so you really get what you ask for if you set its case. #:Erik -- ALGORITHM: a procedure for solving a mathematical problem in a finite number of steps that frequently involves repetition of an operation.
