Re: read-line

The problem you have is that the top level doesn't read the newline
at the end of the s-expression, so your read-line gets that newline
immediately when it executes.

A portable fix?  If you're writing an interactive read-line loop,
then just make it handle blank lines gracefully.  Otherwise, fix
the top level.

I can put in a plug here for the top level we use at Berkeley, but I won't.
