Why does (eq? car car) ==> () in MacScheme?
First, regarding the future of Scheme, I'd like to note that one of my
friends here at the University of Washington will be teaching a small
class of mechanical engineers (something) about software engineering.
He will be using Scheme, and not Fortran, which I guess was quite a
coup on his part.
At any rate, he and I were talking, and he commented that he had
discovered (though it is documented in the manual) that, in MacScheme
it is the case that (eq? car car) ==> (). I was suprised by this.
Could someone please explain what's going on here?
