At some time since 6/3/81 19:24, SHARPC was broken so that
(WHEN-FEATURE ((LOCAL-FEATURES ITS) mumble)))
no longer works. It had worked fine as of the above date.
Broken by compilation, which depends on SHARPA. Apparently Kerns
hasn't yet changed the documentation for SHARPC -- the names of feature
sets are now LOCAL, MACLISP, NIL etc, rather than LOCAL-FEATURES,
MACLISP-FEATURES, NIL-FEATURES etc.
DAMN IT!! Is it so hard to test this stuff before barfing it out on
the rest of the world???
Certainly, the format
(WHEN-FEATURE ((LOCAL ITS) mumble)))
does work and was tested in SHARPC. I may have mentioned to you the
change in names, plus the synonyming/equivalencing feature for backward
compatibility; the latter feature is the buggy one, which is in SHARPA.
I've corrected it, and re-compiled SHARPC so that the backwards-compatibility
thing works now.
