Subject: Re: Fw: How to convert "((X))" to X From: Erik Naggum <firstname.lastname@example.org> Date: Fri, 30 Nov 2001 18:48:58 GMT Newsgroups: comp.lang.lisp Message-ID: <email@example.com> * Francesco Moi | I'm NOT using Common Lisp, but a software wich must to be customized | by using a kind-of-Lisp: CoCreate SolidDesigner. This information is crucial to get help. "Lisp" is not one language, but the one people have a right to assume in the absence of antyhing else you mean is Common Lisp. If you do know about the default, it is not an error to overspecify. | What I'm trying to do is comparing a String and a Symbol. In Common Lisp, this works because a symbol is a string designator. I.e., when you use a symbol in a string "context", what you get is really (symbol-name symbol). This may not be true for other Lisp, so you may have to make that function call explicitly. | And then my idea is removing quotes " " from Name1, or adding them to | Name2... I hope you have made one of those changes at a time. /// -- The past is not more important than the future, despite what your culture has taught you.
