IIRC even when all libraries are loaded, there remain a few things that don't work (correctly), e.g. (doc 'pp) 1. Emacs REPL (prints unreadable results): ,---- | : (doc 'pp) | (doc 'pp) | 1,03kbloadedinstead,itshouldbearangeofnumberswhicharetriedinturn.Whenvarisgiven,itisboundtotheportnumber.:(port0'A)#Allocatefreeport->4:A->1034#Got1034:(port(4000.4008)'A)#Tryoneoftheseports->5:A->4002(pp | 'sym) -> sym (pp 'sym 'cls) -> sym (pp '(sym . cls)) -> | symPretty-printsthefunctionormethoddefinitionofsym.Theoutputformatwouldregeneratethatsamedefinitionwhenreadandexecuted.Seealsopretty,debugandvi.:(pp'tab)(detab(Lst.@)(forNLst(letV(next)≪ | ↑ ↓ Viewing <P>libgpm: zero screen dimension, assuming 80x25. `---- 2. pil REPL (opens W3M on the console): ,---- | (pp 'sym) -> sym | (pp 'sym 'cls) -> sym | (pp '(sym . cls)) -> sym | Pretty-prints the function or method definition of sym.
