Re: if we can see line number in error message

One could build a better debugger using the current debugging facilities and reflective API offered by newLISP and without changing anything inside newLISP. When you said that, do you mean it is possible to build a debugger which can point to the proper line of code ? I think one of the big problem...

Re: if we can see line number in error message

Some time ago Lutz replied here (i searched for it, but couldn't find it) that it wasn't possible without making newLisp go slower. Also that given the nature of the two step parsing newLisp does, source line numbers get lost. I'm quoting from memory so maybe this is not exactly what he said. But th...

Re: HTML Tag functions?

I haven't touched that code in some time now. Furthermore I have some un-pushed changes here in my disc, I changed several things to make it easier to use, for example, to avoid: Every function needs at least one parameter for the inner code, hence the empty strings in the example above. There's no ...

Re: Bug of (context Foo)?

You forgot to quote Foo on your second example:

Code: Select all

(context 'Foo)
Other than that I don't see anything wrong with that. What error are you seeing?

Re: Newlisp won't run on 64bit Kubuntu? (13.04)

What happens if you try running it directly, not through the symbolic link:

/usr/bin/newlisp-10.5.4

What does say 'file' command about that file?

The reported error looks like a shell/file issue, but you show the file there... Strange!

Re: How to implement function overwriting

You define your functions without arguments, like this: (define (foo) (println $args)) ; -> (lambda () (println $args)) (foo 1 2 3) ; -> (1 2 3) I put $args, but you can also use functions args or doargs . Check the manual for them, there're nice examples. You may want to test the arguments' type to...

Re: Keywords for newLISP in the Clojure style

The intellectual exercise was meant to make us think if the language would benefit from adding some syntactic sugar. It was never the argument: "This stuff cannot be done in newlisp without keywords". Maybe I'm shortsighted, but I think about contexts as the last frontier which can protect stuff fro...

First, so you know we're on the same page: I'm for the inclusion of keywords, like the ones I talked above (which I think are the same you're asking for), in newLisp.

Title could also be "Keywords for newLISP in the Common Lisp style".

I agree those kind of keywords are useful.

Ooops! I just wanted an innocent constant, not trying to redefine anything.

Didn't want to use uppercase characters to avoid a possible collision with the constants that will be defined. I'll change it.
