Good question. Hard to answer, though, without a specification of what spearate compilation is... :)
IMHO separate compilation means compiling two files with two different instances of a compiler, i.e. there's no direct communication between the separate compiler runs, as opposed to compiling several separate source files in the same compiler-instance (for example by compiling stuff into an "image"). It's an unfortunate accident of history that the latter is so prevailing in the landscape of Lisp and Scheme implementations. cheers, felix
