Dan Friedman at Indiana (off arpa net) called me to find out if Franz
could be made to do the following:
(dm a (l) l) ;; dm defines a macro..
(a 1) ==> infinite loop.
right now it produces a stack overflow. Clearly it could
be done by a "goto" in the evaluator. Comments?
Would such a feature be useful in various other lisp incarnations?
Would such a feature hurt?
??? What exactly is the "feature" you are talking about? You prefer
an infinite loop to a stack overflow? How is that a feature? Can you
give us a better example perhaps?
