I know that they're used to bind a variable to a value, and that they do
behave differently, but I don't understand the principle behind their
difference, and I can't predict how they will behave differently from each

>From this little piece:
: (set B 1)
!? (set B 1)
NIL -- Protected symbol
: (setq B 1)
-> 1

I deduce that setq doesn't evaluate its first argument, while set does. Why
is that?

Thank you for your time.
