I'm not sure if this is a bug or some unexplained (in the manual,
anyway) feature. At any rate I'd appreciate it if you could explain
this phenomenom to me.
(list (intern "foo"))===>(|FOO|)
(typep (intern "foo"))==>SYMBOL
Does this special handling of the SYMBOL returned by INTERN mean
There is no bug. Note that interning "foo" gives you |foo|, not |FOO|.
The vertical bars are there to quote the lower case letters.
