dean, is this what you are describing?
(let L (list 1 2 3)
(setq L (append L (4)))
(printsp L) )
(1 2 3 4)
The key to this is understanding how let works. It restores the prior value
after execution. See http://software-lab.de/doc/refL.html#let
Defines local variables. The value of the symbol sym - or the values of the
symbols sym in the list of the second form - ***are saved** and the symbols
are bound to the evaluated any arguments. The 64-bit version also accepts
lst arguments in the second form; they may consist only of symbols and
sublists, and match the any argument (destructuring bind). prg is executed,
then the symbols ***are restored to their original values***.
