Re: Nutz!

MacLisp has a new function: MAKE-LIST.  This is just the function to
call in those cases where you want to cons up a list of nils of a
certain length.  (How many times have I written that DO loop, I
wonder?)  The LispMachine has a function MAKE-LIST as well.  It also
conses up a list of nils.  Great!  Now I can use it in my code right?

Wrongo, cons-breath!  Not unless I write it as:

(MAKE-LIST #Q <area-number> 17)
