My next message will have the subject field a-to-c, and will be the TeX
source of the `FUNCTI' pages for the generic functions ADD-DEPENDENT to
COMPUTE-SLOTS (alphabetically). This is pages 27 through 49 of the
current draft of the MOP.
The file arisia.xerox.com:/ftp/pcl/mop/a-to-c.ps is Postscript source
for these pages.
Together with the material I just sent about class initialization, this
material represents the hardest parts of the functi pages. All that
remains of the function pages is:
REMOVE-XXX ADD-XXX is in what I am sending. If we can
agree on those, the remove ones should be easy.
`readers' These are simple generic functions which just
fetch a value associated with a metaobject.
SLOT-XXX-USING-CLASS These are easy to write given agreement on what
to say. What to say in this document is probably
more than in Sandra's cleanup issue. I think we
mostly agree already.
METHOD-FUNCTION-APPLIER This is a performance inspired change to the
method invocation protocol. Details forthcoming.
ENSURE-XXX Most of the issues here already came up when I
sent out the stuff on macroexpansion.
FINALIZE-INHERITANCE I think we agree on this now.
And some odds and ends like EXTRACT-LAMBDA-LIST, VALIDATE-SUPERCLASS
Danny, Jim and I are still optimistic and still slugging away.
