Hi PositronPro, > (de describe-path (Path) > '(1st text `(cadr Path) 2nd text `(car Path) 3rd text.) ) > ... > -> 1st text NIL 2nd text NIL 3rd text > #output has NIL?
This code is rather meaningless in PicoLisp. It returns the list (because it is quoted) and the 'Path' elements are expanded at *read* time. Please check the PicoLisp docs about read macros. A result like > (describe-path '(first second third)) > -> 1st text second 2nd text first 3rd text is not possible in Lisp (i.e. returning 7 results). I suspect you want in fact to get a list like : (describe-path '(first second third)) -> (1st text second 2nd text first 3rd text.) Then the equivalent of a backquote in other Lisp is 'fill': (de describe-path (Path) (fill '(1st text ^(list (cadr Path)) 2nd text ^(list (car Path)) 3rd text.) ) ) ♪♫ Alex -- UNSUBSCRIBE: mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org?subject=Unsubscribe
