The value of (SYMBOLCONC '\; 'FOO) prints as \\\FOO, while the value
of '\;FOO prints as \;FOO. ...
I think you meant to say that it prints as \\\;FOO. Indeed there was a
bug; SYMBOLCONC calls DISPLAY which didn't know how to handle symbols,
so it was PRINTing them instead of DISPLAYing them, thus getting a \ in
the symbol's pname. I fixed this in the source (<F.T.TAU>PRINT.TAU) by
adding a DISPLAY method for symbols; this will be reflected the next
time Apollo T is brought up to date with the sources.
In the meantime you might want to say (SYMBOLCONC ";" 'FOO), which works,
and depending on the context might even be "stylistically better".
Thanks for the bug report. This is the sort of thing I like: easily
described and solved.
