Subject: Re: defmethod and specializing on &key parameters. From: Erik Naggum <email@example.com> Date: Thu, 28 Mar 2002 08:31:32 GMT Newsgroups: comp.lang.lisp Message-ID: <firstname.lastname@example.org> * Daniel Pittman | From my reading of the HyperSpec it seems that you cannot specialize a | method based on keyword arguments. Can someone confirm that this is, | indeed, a correct reading of the `defmethod' entry? This is explained in clause 7.6 Generic Functions and Methods in the standard, specifically in 7.6.4 Congruent Lambda-lists for all Methods of a Generic Function. /// -- In a fight against something, the fight has value, victory has none. In a fight for something, the fight is a loss, victory merely relief.
