Re: God damn it!
STILL wrong! Now splicing macros at top level always return NIL.
That is ~(a) => nil at top level.
Also LISPT users are going to have a hard time since $DEV5K is
no longer there for GETDDTSYM to find. (Perhaps this is in some
package LISPT uses (HUMBLE ?) I didn't have the patience to find out.)
LISPT PATCH patches $DEV5K. In 1860, $DEV5K has been renamed $DEVBUF, which
is a somewhat superior name. I have patched LISP to also have the symbol
$DEV5K for this location. LISPT PATCH seems to work properly under the
cursory examination I gave it. However, somebody should probably check it
out a bit more to be sure, and change it to use the symbol $DEVBUF instead
by the next LISP version.
