Re: omissions

    I don't recall seeing anywhere in the manual any discussion of the
    difference between using || and slashification.  
That's because there is no difference.
						     I gather that the
    former creates un-interned symbols?  
					 I'm not sure where this point
    should go -- probably in the section on the reader and external
    syntax, with a brief mention in the early section on special

    A description of how to add your own # characters for the reader and
    ~ codes for format should really be in there.  I don't know how to
    do it, and it can't be THAT awful.
The next edition will have the former.  I'm not sure about the latter.
    I hope the next edition will contain at least some of the omitted
    sections, like readtables, a better discussion of the display I/O
    system, the stepper, etc.  (This list is not in priority order.)
It will.  It's just a matter of lack of time to do everything.
