Subject: Re: Midfunction Recursion From: Erik Naggum <email@example.com> Date: 24 Oct 2002 18:08:10 +0000 Newsgroups: comp.lang.lisp Message-ID: <firstname.lastname@example.org> * Greg Menke | Assuming the map results you give are for scheme, it seems Scheme is | closing over the value of i instead of the variable itself. If so, are | all Scheme closures formed that way? Scheme specifies that each new "iteration" has its own bindings, just as if it had used (local) recursion, while Common Lisp has one binding and iterates by asssigning new values to it. The more basic Scheme facility "named let" makes this somewhat more explicit. -- Erik Naggum, Oslo, Norway Act from reason, and failure makes you rethink and study harder.
