Expand..

Post by derek »

Maybe I'm doing something wrong but I can't get expand to work..

(set 'x 2 'a '(d e)) ; from the examples

(expand '(a x(b c x) 'x 'a))

For me this just returns the first list I typed. But I'm just using this on the console, not in any macros.. is this possible??

Many thanks.

In the example, we have : (expand '(a x (b c x)) 'x 'a) which returns -> ((d e) 2 (b c 2)).
But you wrote (expand '(a x(b c x) 'x 'a)) ...

Many thanks - I figured it out shortly after posting. I used the neglook examples and it worked, so I guessed it was my crappy typing..

Newlisp is great - many thanks for this language. I never managed to get quite good enough at lisp and scheme, but with newlisp I should be vaguely useful for something..

I myself tried some Lisp(s) and many Scheme(s), and other scripting languages too, like Python, Perl or Ruby, but I'm definetly not able to manage with them, and at the end I come back again and again to NewLISP, (and Lua, equally placed with NewLISP as my favorite languages) :)
