Subject: Re: CLOSE and OUTPUT-STREAM-P From: Erik Naggum <email@example.com> Date: Mon, 01 Apr 2002 19:20:34 GMT Newsgroups: comp.lang.lisp Message-ID: <firstname.lastname@example.org> * Sam Steingold <email@example.com> | Okay, what about things like STREAM-ELEMENT-TYPE and | STREAM-EXTERNAL-FORMAT? | | I take it that Erik Naggum will say that CLOSE should not change the | return values of these functions. Yes. I regard close as modifying one property of a stream, because it is important to be able to reopen the stream correctly after it has been closed. /// -- 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.
