Re: Formal spec; implementation; nesting

This page is part of the web mail archives of SRFI 62 from before July 7th, 2015. The new archives for SRFI 62 contain all messages, not just those from before July 7th, 2015.

Regarding the nesting rule: Perhaps it should be an error to write two
#; tokens in a row? It's not something humans are likely to do, and
since the syntax is for human convenience (not for macros) it's not
something likely to come up in a macro transformer. That permits at
least three implementations:

1. Signal an error.
2. Use the "logical" rule favored by current implementations.
3. Use the "intuitive" rule favored by Paul and I.
