            Would someone tell me how to use SCPOS from Lisp?

        You're asking us??

    See .INFO.;LISP NEWIO and .INFO.;LISP CURSOR for descriptions of cursor
    position control in Maclisp. -kmp
SCPOS is not cursor position control.  If DEVON really wants to use SCPOS
(and he should read the documentation produced by doing :CALL SCPOS if he
hasn't already), he should do (SYSCALL 2 'SCPOS HPOS VPOS -1), which
will return a list of the old HPOS and VPOS.  Note that this merely tells
ITS where the cursor is, and doesn't move it.  DEVON may well be wanting
exactly this.
