What (some x x x x)??

Postby h2o » Thu May 07, 2009 3:15 am

Hi everybody!
This is my first posting and it's about a maybe very simple question:
What does the function some??
I've tried to parse the simple Eliza-prog from paip and there it was (in (use-eliza-rules) )..
It is not listed in Steeles book and as it's a very common word it is nearly impossible to
find it on google...
SOME takes a function and some lists and does what??
HeLp PlEaSe!

Instead of giving you the fish, I'll give you the rod:

Yes, thanks!
Downloaded it and put it under my pillow.
Compared to other languages it's sometimes hard for lisp-beginners to find the way around, so this might be a big step forward.

thank you gugamilare,

For future reference, lispdoc.com is an excellent tool. Its lisp-specific search covers the CLHS and a few other texts.

Yes I see,..
Thank you. This is an even nicer Lisp-documentation.
