FUNCALL and GETDEF

Post by cameyo »

Hi all,
i'm looking for the functions FUNCALL and GETDEF.
Are there equivalent functions in newLisp?
Sorry for dumb question...i'm a newbie.

I think there is no need to 'funcall' in newLisp, because variable name space and function name space are not separated as in Common Lisp, and maybe for other reasons, but I may be mistaken...

As for 'getdef', I can't give an answer because i don't know what is the use of this function in CL. Sorry !

Hi newbert,
I have found these functions in an old article on Lisp (to define a function it use DE, maybe Portable Standard Lisp).
GETDEF gets the definition of a function.
Thanks for infos.

A Function in newLISP is not a "closure", so we can examine its content typing its name without parentheses :

Code: Select all

> (define (double x) (+ x x))
(lambda (x) (+ x x))
> double
(lambda (x) (+ x x))
Thank you for info about GETDEF
