Hi Christophe, >>> No problem for Display, but "hello" should spontaneously have its value >>> changed to some XML containing the string "hello".
in other words, you want to use the transient symbol "hello" as a variable? What is preventing you? It's often done in PicoLisp. (let "hello" 123 (println "hello") ) (let "hello" "<xml>hello</xml>" (println "hello") ) > The real problem is with transient symbols. Or maybe I missed something? There is no problem with transient symbols. I would recommend reading PicoLisp documentation on the topic. Alex and Thorsten did very good job with that. If your problem is that you don't have a reference to that transient symbol in your code due to being out of that transient scope, you can always create a function in that transient scope which will have a reference to that transient symbol and will do the desired manipulation.
