Subject: Re: How to get symbol-value from symbol-name From: Erik Naggum <firstname.lastname@example.org> Date: 2000/08/21 Newsgroups: comp.lang.lisp Message-ID: <email@example.com> * "Yang, Hon-Jang" <firstname.lastname@example.org> | 1. I need a function with | input st : where st is a symbol-name of some symbol | output: symbol-value of the symbol with symbol-name st The symbol with a given name is returned by find-symbol. (Remember to get the package and case conversions right.) | 2. Suppose f is an lisp function written by lisp scouce, how to get the | lisp source code of f? You cannot easily go from function to function name. If you have the name, use the source code system in your Lisp system to direct the editor to locate the source code for that function. #:Erik -- If this is not what you expected, please alter your expectations.
