Hi,

I'm struggling with a rather elementary syntax error. I'm trying to translate into PicoLisp the equivalence of this bash script:


while read LINE
do
    echo "Hello $LINE!"
done

 ... or this Ruby script:

STDOUT.sync = true
while 1
  line = STDIN.readline.strip
  puts "Hello #{line}!"
end

 ... but when I try to run this PicoLisp (greeter.l) code ...

(while T
    (let L (line)
        (prinl "Hello " (pack (trim L) "!") ) ) )

 ... I get this:

/greeter.l: line 6: syntax error near unexpected token `('
/greeter.l: line 6: `    (let L (line)'

What can it be that's the problem here?

/Jon
