re: Current Practice:
. . .
The Lucid documentation indicates
that certain functions at top-level are treated as though within an
(EVAL-WHEN (EVAL COMPILE LOAD) ...): REQUIRE, all of the package
functions listed above, INTERN, and UNINTERN; it is not clear what
happens with PROCLAIM.
Two things should be clarified here [just in case anyone raises the
issue in the future]:
(1) The forms documented by Lucid as being implicitly wrapped within
an eval-when do not include toplevel EVAL-WHEN forms; as can be seen
from the proposal regarding non-top-level eval-when's, the semantics
of the situation (EVAL COMPILE LOAD) cannot be fully "undone" by
(2) Lucid does not currently include PROCLAIM, but no doubt would be
quite happy to do so.
