Subject: Re: #+,#- etc. (Re: Behaviour of #'directory) From: Erik Naggum <firstname.lastname@example.org> Date: Wed, 06 Mar 2002 21:01:09 GMT Newsgroups: comp.lang.lisp Message-ID: <email@example.com> * Marco Antoniotti <firstname.lastname@example.org> | PS. There is one extra thing to note, that may or may not be | obvious. The CL reader actually checks the SYMBOL-NAME of the symbols | in *FEATURES*, so that #+:cmu works exactly like #+cmu in my setup. Not so. The #+ and #- readers bind *package* to the keyword package. Using #+:cmu is just plain ugly, and preobably reflects an old bug that somebody got hurt running into. /// -- In a fight against something, the fight has value, victory has none.
