Subject: Re: What's up with #'? From: Erik Naggum <firstname.lastname@example.org> Date: 16 Nov 2002 18:36:18 +0000 Newsgroups: comp.lang.lisp Message-ID: <email@example.com> * Chris Gehlker | Let me ask, with all due humility as a very newbie, if anyone else thinks #' | is a code smell? If it is a code smell, is it *supposed* to be in the sense | that C++ has things in it that stink by design? If you prefer to write (function foo) over #'foo, nobody will notice, as the latter means exactly and only the former. If you prefer to write (quote foo) over 'foo, however, many will notice, since ' is so common. FYI: /real/ humility looks quite different. -- Erik Naggum, Oslo, Norway Act from reason, and failure makes you rethink and study harder.
