Subject: Re: Pass by reference From: Erik Naggum <email@example.com> Date: 18 Nov 2000 02:01:25 +0000 Newsgroups: comp.lang.lisp Message-ID: <firstname.lastname@example.org> * Bruce Hoult | My understanding of Ada's OUT and INOUT parameters (from reading | Steelman many years ago only, alas, I've never actually seen a compiler | for it) was that they could be implemented either by reference or | value/return, and it was an error to depend on the implementation. My point here was simply to enumerate some languages that support some useful concept of references, not quibble over implementations of that concept. I can retract Ada from the list of languages if that is what _you_ want to accomplish. #:Erik -- ALGORITHM: a procedure for solving a mathematical problem in a finite number of steps that frequently involves repetition of an operation.
