Subject: Re: Clearing eof condition from stream. From: Erik Naggum <firstname.lastname@example.org> Date: Mon, 05 Nov 2001 23:52:39 GMT Newsgroups: comp.lang.lisp Message-ID: <email@example.com> * Barry Margolin <firstname.lastname@example.org> | How does the EOF error handler clear the EOF condition in CL once it has | handled it? I wonder how I managed _not_ to explain this clearly. There is no "EOF condition" on the stream to _clear_ in the first place. When the handler returns or transfers control somewhere else, the condition is _gone_. If the stream remembers that it has hit end of file and you cannot retry the operation, I consider that a violation of conformance with the standard. /// -- Norway is now run by a priest from the fundamentalist Christian People's Party, the fifth largest party representing one eighth of the electorate. -- Carrying a Swiss Army pocket knife in Oslo, Norway, is a criminal offense.
