Re: [racket-dev] =?

Would this mean equal?, eq?, =, or what? I suppose it would make sense to be =? since the others have a question mark, but I'd almost prefer it to be equal? just to save me some typing. (In fact, maybe I'll bind it to that myself ...). I imagine that this kind of confusion is, or is related

Re: [racket-dev] stepper UI question

I was just trying to debug a program today that goes through a series of complex macros. I used Check Syntax so I can see what variables are bound where (some of which are syntax variables), and when I got stuck I wanted to see how the macro reduces. I clicked the macro stepper, and it spun

[racket-dev] Typed Racket's optimizer is now on by default (Re: [plt] Push #21190: master branch updated)

2010-10-06 Thread Vincent St-Amour
Typed Racket's type-driven optimizer is now turned on by default. The #:optimize switch that was previously used to turn the optimizer on has been kept around for backward compatibility, but is now a no-op. A #:no-optimize switch has been added, in case you want to turn the optimizer off (e.g.
