Subject: Re: Idiot's guide to special variables take 2 From: Erik Naggum <firstname.lastname@example.org> Date: 15 Nov 2002 00:44:33 +0000 Newsgroups: comp.lang.lisp Message-ID: <email@example.com> * firstname.lastname@example.org (thelifter) | A) In Lisp variables are called Symbols. This is in fact wrong. | I think this eliminated the confusion which was caused by defining a | symbol as the "name" of a variable. You have reintroduced the confusion. | Hope I could help you to improve the writing... I have also learned a | lot by reading it, thank you! I fail to see what was wrong or lacking in the description in CLtL 1 or 2 or in the standard. In my view, Erann's confused expression can only make things worse if you are already confused. As has been shown. -- Erik Naggum, Oslo, Norway Act from reason, and failure makes you rethink and study harder. Act from faith, and failure makes you blame someone and push harder.
