In zwei in System 78.34, ZMail 38.5, microcode 836, " VAX", on Lisp Machine Twenty:
I was reading in ai:lmdoc;bug lispm into the editor and after
56% of it was read in I got the following error:
>> error: The argument function-spec was NIL, while in
SI:function-spec-get <- Zwei:sectionize-buffer <-
It happened a couple of times.
I have always been skeptical of the wisdom of having the editor come up
in lisp mode by default in files which don't have either a "LISP" type
or a -*-Mode: Lisp-*-. These problems will always arise as long as
this is the case.
