In system 27.79 nws, with microcode 661, on LISP Machine Six:
The LispMachine should support CASEQ.
What7s wrong with SELECTQ?
Nothing is wrong with SELECTQ. But MacLisp has this thing called
CASEQ which I use because it does the right thing with regard to
fixnums and it was once advertized that CASEQ would be understood by
the compiler. I cannot have SELECTQ expand into a CASEQ because CASEQ
will not let me mix fixnums and symbols. The solution is obvious, on
the LispMachine CASEQ should be a macro that expands into a SELECTQ.
