Re: gensym question

This won't work. Remember the point of GENSYM is to give you a fresh and unique interned symbol; if you're calling it at mexp time you will get the same symbol over and over.

Re: need help with lispworks

Thanks, as my post had been delayed by the moderator for two days before publishing I already dug a bit into it and found out that you can't create execs with that license as it's crippleware and deleted LispWorks. Now I'm giving a try to CLISP.. Yes, I'm new to LISP so all I want to have is some L...

Re: Binary I/O

It depends on the problem you're trying to solve. If you need to produce plain 7bit-files because some other (probably legacy) application requires that format then you should try to bend CL to do that (using ODD-STREAMS or some other means). Otherwise just use standard octets or no binary represent...

Paul,

I still don't get why (defvar *list* '(1 2 3)) at the REPL could not in any way be stuffed into read-only space by the implementation...
