Subject: PCL and Symbolics ZMACS
I have been having some problems editing PCL methods in ZMACS.
1. The function record-definition in the file 3600-low is mostly
commented out, so that the method definition does not get linked
to its source file. Was there a reason for this? It seems to work
once I uncommented it.
2. I have a method-defining macro which uses the declaration
sys:function-parent in order to tell the editor that the method is
defined within the textual body of the macro call. This stopped
working in St. Patrick's day PCL.
Here is a sample of code which (I believe) should work but does not:
(scl:defprop deffoo "foo maker" si:definition-type-name)
(defmacro deffoo (name)
`(defmethod ,name ((self pcl:object))
(declare (sys:function-parent ,name deffoo))
(format t "~&~s" self))
Any attempt to edit smurf breaks with ZMACS unable to find
(PCL:METHOD SMURF (PCL:OBJECT))
in the (correct) source-file; ZMACS then tries a textual search, which,
of course, fails.
