Top Level Forms, etc.
Can someone give me some clues regarding AKCL's compilation of top-level
forms. I have a file with stuff like this:
(use-package '(:foo :bar))
(import '(mumble::define-condition mumble::make-condition))
First, when I try to compile my file I get lots of complaints about
these first three forms being in a bad place. What? I've never heard
of this and one can even see examples of this in Steele. What do
these messages mean in AKCL?
Second, define-condition is definitely defined from everything that
I look at (actually from the conditions package which I load first).
However when the compiler gets to the define-condition form it complains
about it being undefined. Another "What?". Is this related to my first
bit of non-understanding above?
If anyone can give me suggestions for a better way to do these sorts
of things in AKCL I would be glad to hear them. I haven't yet experimented
with shadowing-import and the like (that's next). I don't seem to
be able to use-package on :conditions since I get conflicts between
conditions:error and error, etc. Somehow I would like to be able to
use a package and have the symbols in it shadow any others already
visible. I don't want to have to find out what they all are beforehand
and use a big shadowing-import. Any suggestions?
