David A. Wheeler scripsit: > I disagree. Many Scheme systems do not implement [#' and friends] or > implement some of these with very different semantics. For example, > the many Schemes that implement SRFI-10 do something completely > different with "#,". They've also been abandoned in R7RS. Ahem. They have *not* been abandoned in R7RS. They have been excluded from the *small* language of R7RS. If syntax-case becomes part of R7RS-large (and I'm betting it will: it lost a preliminary ballot by one vote, and one of the non-voters says he'll vote this time), then its lexical syntax will return. SRFI-10, on the other hand, is very very unlikely to become part of R7RS (says the guy who's in control of the agenda, unless the members vote to override me on this one). Sorry for being stroppy, but I take this R7RS business seriously. -- John Cowan http://ccil.org/~cowan cowan@xxxxxxxx SAXParserFactory [is] a hideous, evil monstrosity of a class that should be hung, shot, beheaded, drawn and quartered, burned at the stake, buried in unconsecrated ground, dug up, cremated, and the ashes tossed in the Tiber while the complete cast of Wicked sings "Ding dong, the witch is dead." --Elliotte Rusty Harold on xml-dev
