Example text

15 . Arrays are dimensioned collections of objects. An array can have any nonnegative number of dimensions and is indexed by a sequence of integers. A general array can have any Lisp object as a component; other types of arrays are specialized for efficiency and can hold only certain types of Lisp objects. It is possible for two arrays, possibly with differing dimension information, to share the same set of elements (such that modifying one array modifies the other also) by causing one to be displaced to the other.

If there is no exponent specifier, then the decimal point is required, and there must be digits after it. The exponent specifier consists of an exponent marker, an optional sign, and a non-empty sequence of digits. For preciseness, here is a modified-BNF description of floating-point notation. floating-point-number ::= [sign] {digit}∗ decimal-point {digit}+ [exponent] | [sign] {digit}+ [decimal-point {digit}∗ ] exponent sign ::= + | decimal-point ::= . digit ::= 0 | 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 exponent ::= exponent-marker [sign] {digit}+ exponent-marker ::= e | s | f | d | l | E | S | F | D | L If no exponent specifier is present, or if the exponent marker e (or E) is used, then the precise format to be used is not specified.

However, when a function is said to “return true” or to “be true” in some circumstance, this means that it returns some value other than nil, but not necessarily t. 3. Evaluation, Expansion, and Equivalence Execution of code in Lisp is called evaluation because executing a piece of code normally results in a data object called the value produced by the code. The symbol ⇒ is used in examples to indicate evaluation. ” The symbol → is used in examples to indicate macro expansion. ” This implies that the two pieces of code do the same thing; the second piece of code is the definition of what the first does.
