In ZWEI in System 242.269, Experimental Schema 18.2, imperial purple, on Lisp Machine Joe Louis (3600):
How come there isn't any facility (at least that I know of)
in Zwei similar to the "set \" in the inspector. It would be
nice if a region could be evaluated "into a variable" such as \
or something similar.
I usually use m-W, Suspend, c-Y to copy the region into the input editor,
where I can easily enclose it in a SETQ or a function call. Of course you can
do the same thing directly in the editor, but then you've modified your
buffer. This seems like a bit of a kludge, but it works fairly smoothly.
You couldn't do something like this in the Inspector, since you are pointing
at objects, not evaluating expressions (text).
A good question is whether the c-sh-E command in the editor should set
the variables + and *. I guess there are arguments both ways.
