Re: Passing arguments to find-if

Kohath, Thanx - that was it. lisp1 vs. lisp2??? I'm definitely missing something! I'm learning Lisp from Touretzky's book, "Common Lisp" which was re-published by Dover in 2013. It was originally published in 1990 which I guess is where the lisp1 comes in. I chose Common Lisp over Scheme simply beca...

Passing arguments to find-if

I don't understand the following compile error using CCL on Mac OSX: (setf tbl '((foo fee) (flubber mcgee))) (defun look-up (key field-func table) (find-if #'(lambda (x) (equal (field-func x) key)) table)) (look-up 'flubber #'first tbl) I get the following error: ? (load "~/Code/Lisp/my-lib.lisp") ;...

Re: Local functions in common Lisp?

Nuntilus, Thanx for the suggie and the doc pointer. This version works, and the inner function, fee, is invisible from the top REPL level. (defun my-reverse2 (ol) (labels ((fee (x y) (if (equal x nil) y (fee (rest x) (cons (first x) y))))) (fee ol nil))) A couple of observations: 1) I was missing a ...

Local functions in common Lisp?

I want to hide as a local a helper function within its parent function. (defun fubar (x) (defun feebar (y) ...) ...) doesn't work because feebar becomes a global (at least it's global in the REPL which is my sandbox). Next I tried this: ;; my-reverse (defun my-reverse (ol) (let (foo #'(lambda (x y) ...

Re: Hemlock editor - modify mode line

I'm finding the Hemlock manuals largely inscrutable. Is there an easy way to display the current line and column numbers of the cursor location? Most editors do this by default.

Thanx - Charlie

Hemlock editor

I'm running Clozure CCL downloaded and installed from the Mac app store (on a Mac - obviously:) It has the Hemlock editor built in, and this fits my needs. For various reasons I do NOT consider any of the Emacs flavors an option for me. I want to add some my own functions to make some minor changes....

Is there a command to reinitialize a current repl session without doing an exit and restart?
