Subject: Re: quest for pass-by-reference semantics in CL From: Erik Naggum <email@example.com> Date: Tue, 07 May 2002 02:49:52 GMT Newsgroups: comp.lang.lisp Message-ID: <firstname.lastname@example.org> * Bruce Hoult -> Erann Gat | You're implying that I don't understand Lisp bindings and values? I am not satisfied to imply it: You demonstrate a serious lack of understanding of several such core issues. This is quite amazing. | That would be a very strange thing if true, since I'm a member of the | core team working on a Lisp-family compiler. Gee. How tragic. But strange? No. Using such "credentials" to prove that you have understood something is also quite amazingly ridiculous. -- 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. 70 percent of American adults do not understand the scientific process.
