This is not a bug gripe; I have been referred to you for possible
information on Maclisp, since nobody in the Multics-world seem to be
able to answer:
In the current (Rev. 1, post-Moon) Maclisp manual there exists a
reference to a wonderous device called "The Morgenstern Stepper",
available, so is claimed, "in the Multics implementation". Needless to
say, the prescribed incantation fails to produce anything other than an
unbound symbol barf. QUESTION: Is this, or any other stepper, available
"in the Multics implementation", or can such a device be transferred
from another implementation to Multics Maclisp (assuming evalhook and
any other necessary goodies are still alive...)
Are there, or have there been any plans to implement "The Extensions"
(defstruct, setf, etc.), other than backquote, in Multics?
