Re: EXPLODE/IMPLODE equivalents

CLISP has strings as first class objects, therefore IMPLODE and EXPLODE
are not required. To get at the characters in a symbol use princ-to-string
and then elt. To create a symbol from a string use read-from-string.
to stick characters together, either use a string array with a fill
pointer or use concatenate.
