Help on elusive CLHS symbol

Postby garethw » Sun Mar 16, 2014 7:46 pm

A few weeks back, I stumbled on an interesting entry in the CLHS dictionary. Seems I didn't bookmark it, and I can't for the life of me remember what it was called.

I *think* that what it did was created a set of lexical bindings from a list of symbols. I believe that the description said it could be useful for writing compilers for other languages in CL.

Anyone know what I might have been looking at?

TIA,
gareth

It might be progv.
cl-2dsyntax is my attempt to create a Python-like reader. My mirror of CLHS (and the dark themed version).

Maybe one of these...

Lexical variable bindings using a list of symbols:

Dynamic variable bindings using a list of symbols:

Error handler and restart bindings using a list of symbols:

Local functions and macros:

Very special compiler stuff:

It was indeed PROGV.

Thank you, both.
