Subject: Re: Subseq relative to end of sequence From: Erik Naggum <firstname.lastname@example.org> Date: 24 Sep 2002 21:23:54 +0000 Newsgroups: comp.lang.lisp Message-ID: <email@example.com> * Jacek Generowicz | Is there a built-in way, or an idiom for removing the last N elements | form a sequence (in my partictular case, a string) ? The language could have been defined such that a negative index would be interpreted to be from the end rather than from the beginning of a sequence. I sometimes think it should, since negative indices have no meaning now. -- Erik Naggum, Oslo, Norway Act from reason, and failure makes you rethink and study harder.
