there is also a new masterscope on <NEWLISP>. I modified the dESCRIBE
command so that the user can specify additional information
that he would like to include in a functions description, other than
the information that is already provided by the system.
DESCRIBELST is a list each of whose elements is a pair conisting of
a string descriptor and a form. The form is evaluated (it can refer to the
name of the funtion being described by the free variable FN), and if it
returns a non-NIL value, the description string is printed followd by
the items in the value in the standard describe format.
Example: To include the types used by a function in the describe, the entry
("types: " (GETRELATION FN '(USE TYPE) T) would suffice.
