Re: Incremental programming style

Perfect perfect! :) You don't need to convince me as I've already started to use Emacs when I understood what it was... just... I've postponed the time in wich I'll really learn how to use it. Until now I've simply gone having two buffers, one with the repl and the other with a lisp file, so I was s...

Incremental programming style

Hello there :) I wuold like to pose you a question about the way you use to carry out an incremental programming style with emacs, or in general with the repl... at my very first steps, being used to have a structured-file-to-compile, I asked you how to execute a file from the repl, however after so...

Re: Variable reference in structures

Well I have to admit I yet have a little experience in Java too... but while it could seem to be a contradiction, at the moment I'm loving both the languages for quite opposite reasons, one for the rigid structure and the other for the freedom of actually "do what you think", or almost... maybe, my ...

Re: Variable reference in structures

Sure sure you're right, at this purpose I'm seeking for different opinions. On a first look, it seems that as the number of specializers will increment, I'll also have an exponential growth of the methods to define but, probably, it is possibile to more efficently combine the two approaches and avoi...

Re: Overriding describe

Oh, perfect thank you! :)
Just for completeness... do you know why wasn't I allowed to override directly describe? What sort of function is it?

Overriding describe

Good evening every one, as promised I'm here again :D I'm having little troubles in trying to override the definition of the describe generic function... reading Sonja's book it seems she can do it without any problems so maybe I'm doing something wrong... I've tried the same way on different implem...

Re: Variable reference in structures

Good evening Goheeca and thank for the links. It's quite a coincidence that I came to read your post now, as it's just ten minutes that I've finished to read Sonja about multimethods :D Well, I have to admit to be a little doubtful about them... on the one hand, I like to have the possibility to do ...

Re: Variable reference in structures

Ok I give up :D The trying was instructive but probably doesn't worth to have more time spent on it, Sonja Keene has arrived, I'll come back to your samples with the new baggage of knowledge!
