I am in agreement with everything Moon has said, except for the
Right now, Common Lisp has two kinds of cells: global cells and local
cells. Local cells have lexical extent, while global cells have global
extent and can be referenced from anywhere except where they are shadowed
by a local cell referenced by the same name.
I believe this paragraph confuses the notions of extent and scope.
Quite right. I must have meant to say "scope", but spazzed.
