Hi, I was trying to avoid the «? prompt» in case of an error. I know that this REPL is sometimes useful, but not for my use case. I eventually succeeded with (de *Err (bye)).
During this journey, I noticed a few things. About *Err, the doc says in: http://www.software-lab.de/doc/refE.html#*Err «a `prg` body». I didn't notice the use of `de`, so I first tried silly things like: (setq *Err (bye)) # this one is funny (setq *Err '(bye)) (setq *Err "(bye)") But none worked. So I went to: http://www.software-lab.de/doc/refP.html#prog A beginner may think that the body of `prog` is not really a list. A beginner would rather think that the body of `run` (or rather its first parameter) is a list. So I didn't know what to do from here, except going to the part of the docs where `any`, `cnt`, `prg`… are explained: http://www.software-lab.de/doc/ref.html#fun where indeed 'run is mentionned. http://www.software-lab.de/doc/refR.html#run Then I went back to the doc of *Err: http://www.software-lab.de/doc/refE.html#*Err and noticed that the official way to set it is (de *Err (bye)) I would have find this clearer: (setq *Err '((bye))) To me, the use of 'de here is convoluted. I eventually realised how it may work. My guess is that since (de a (x)) defines a function taking an evaluated param x, that returns nothing (or NIL), the value of a is ((x)). I'd understand that these suggestions would not make their way to the official docs, but I know for sure that the prompt at the end of the example here is a ? and not a $: http://www.software-lab.de/doc/refE.html#*Err Anyway, I'm happy with PicoLisp ! chri -- http://profgra.org/lycee/ (site pro) http://delicious.com/profgraorg (liens, favoris) https://twitter.com/profgraorg http://microalg.info -- UNSUBSCRIBE: mailto:email@example.com?subject=Unsubscribe
