I would say that '*Var' is all right. > I could of course just name it 'Var', but the '*Var' would underline > its importance. Yes. Also, 'Var' is meant to denote symbols which are bound locally/dynamically. > BTW Are constants in uppercase (like 'MYCONST') > acceptable in PicoLisp? Yes. I haven't seen or used many constants yet (a good case might be "lib/openGl.l" though), but an all-uppercase notations seems natural to me. One thing to remember is of course that there are no real "constants" in PicoLisp. Anything may be modified at any time. ♪♫ Alex -- UNSUBSCRIBE: mailto:email@example.com?subject=Unsubscribe
