I don't recall seeing anywhere in the manual any discussion of the
difference between using || and slashification.
That's because there is no difference.
I gather that the
former creates un-interned symbols?
I'm not sure where this point
should go -- probably in the section on the reader and external
syntax, with a brief mention in the early section on special
A description of how to add your own # characters for the reader and
~ codes for format should really be in there. I don't know how to
do it, and it can't be THAT awful.
The next edition will have the former. I'm not sure about the latter.
I hope the next edition will contain at least some of the omitted
sections, like readtables, a better discussion of the display I/O
system, the stepper, etc. (This list is not in priority order.)
It will. It's just a matter of lack of time to do everything.
