These are newbie questions, I admit. No flames if you can hold
'em back :)
Some objects are unprintable (ie: #<ob-name>). Some subset of
unprintable objects could be CLOS class-instances. If I defined
a print-function in defclass, should instances of this class
miraculously become printable?
Second question: Has a database interface been written for
Postgres (PostGres95 (not to do with Win95) more specifically)
by chance? For unix, NetBSD i386, if required.
I am an experienced C programmer; would it be involved to write
an interface if none have yet been written?
The reasons I ask both these questions are for object storage.
The database would be the big winner so I could write out object
state information, but failing that, printing objects to files
could be workable. Slower?
