Re: read-line

// Read-line works fine:

// "sadfasd"
// NIL

// Read-line should start reading as soon as you close the parenthesis

Read-line is fine, but the toplevel doesn't read the newline
if you type (read-line)<return>.  It's clearly difficult
to deal with if you write a program that begins by reading
some interactive input.  It has to know to skip over the
first newline.
