Factor385 (8/8/2009 3:24:31 PM) comp.lang.lisp Just out of curiosity, have any CLL people looked at Factor? I've always been interested in Forth, and this seems to be quite an interesting implementation of a Forth-derived language, with some fairly obvi... Tim
Bigger disks in an Ultra2526 (4/25/2005 3:15:06 PM) comp.sys.sun.hardware Are there any constraints (power is the obvious worry, the machine will be a long way away and I don't want anything to fry) to putting larger SCSI disks in an Ultra2? Specifically I want to put a couple of 18... Tim
DVDs on oldish desktop machines826 (4/19/2005 2:39:18 PM) comp.sys.sun.hardware We're obviously going to want to have DVD drives soon for Solaris media if nothing else. Is it possible/easy/cheap to put DVD drives in Ultra 5/10 machines or Sunblade 100s? Can we just use random PC ones (th... Tim
Ultra 2 CPU module compatibility324 (4/5/2005 6:34:04 PM) comp.sys.sun.hardware Can anyone tell me if all the ultra 2 CPU modules are compatible with any ultra 2? I have a couple of boxes with 200MHz CPUs in and I'm wondering if I can put 300 or 400MHz ones in there and have them work (ba... Tim

DEFSTRUCT and lexical environment44295 (10/9/2009 5:59:48 PM) comp.lang.lisp While working on the :include option, I came across a part of the spec that is silent on the lexical environment of the included struct. Here's an example: Start with (let ((x 99)) (defstruct foo (a (+ x 2))... jerryboetje(14)
Equality of foreign objects5340 (10/14/2009 9:20:20 PM) comp.lang.lisp The hyperspec says of EQUAL that it behaves like EQ for every object except in a bunch of special cases. Does this mean that no conforming Common Lisp implementation can extend EQUAL to meaningfully compare imp... alessiostalla(364)
Most hackable Lisp?3455 (10/16/2009 11:18:56 PM) comp.lang.lisp Hi all! First of all, I must say I love Lisp, and I love this group - lots of very wise and very helpful people all around. I'm fairly new to Lisp, and to be honest, to me Lisp is more of a philosophy than la... justchecking8964(2)
UNC pathname to access common drives1065 (11/16/2009 1:58:26 PM) comp.lang.lisp Does common lisp allow accessing "network drives" or "common drives" using UNC pathname or is it implementation dependent? I have ECL on windows and need to read and write data in shared network drives of the t... franco(246)

Is this undefined behavior ?
