Subject: Re: Destructors for CLOS objects From: Erik Naggum <firstname.lastname@example.org> Date: Thu, 13 Dec 2001 10:13:46 GMT Newsgroups: comp.lang.lisp Message-ID: <email@example.com> * Rolf Wester <firstname.lastname@example.org> | I'm just a Lisp beginner, so I'm not sure wether I'm right. But shouldn't it read: | | (defmacro with-my-object ((var &rest init-options) &body body) | (let ((obj (gensym))) | `(let (,obj ,var) | instead of `(let (,var ,obj) | | If I'm wrong please correct me. There is a huge difference between ((foo bar)) and (foo bar) in let. The former binds foo to the current value of bar. The latter binds foo and bar to nil, the default value in absence of a value in a binding, and the order is thus immaterial. /// -- The past is not more important than the future, despite what your culture has taught you.
