Subject: Re: LOOP discrepancy From: Erik Naggum <email@example.com> Date: 24 Aug 2002 05:17:09 +0000 Newsgroups: comp.lang.lisp Message-ID: <firstname.lastname@example.org> * Matthew Danish | Does this mean that all stepping of variables should occur before any | termination-tests are performed--regardless of lexical position--or only | before termination-tests associated with the iteration-control clauses? My understanding is that termination tests should be performed as early as possible. Otherwise, if you loop over a vector and use either "for index from start below end" or some equivalent thereof, you would not want to access the endth element, not even in the finally clause. -- Erik Naggum, Oslo, Norway Act from reason, and failure makes you rethink and study harder.
