The source for LPAR-READER is not in Lisp, it's in C [as are a lot
of the speed-critical I/O routines in CLISP]. Look in the following
source files [the CLISP build preprocesses ".d" into ".c" files]:

    src/constsym.d  [line 359 or so]
    src/io.d        [line 2519 or so]

But you might be able to use READ-DELIMITED-LIST (q.v.) to solve
your problem...
