GC and BYE
I'd like to put my vote in for these two functions. Especially BYE, QUIT or
EXITLISP or whatever. I recently tried out the new HP Common Lisp. After
experimenting for a few minutes, I decided to exit the lisp. I then had to
find the documentation to see how one did it. It was a real pain.
While we are on the subject, how about another feature. PSL had the ability
to turn on a switch that specified that all future function definitions would
be compiled instead of interpreted. It made for a very nice programming
environment to switch between compiled and interpreted code. Its also
much easier to turn on the switch instead of changing all function definitions
(defun foo ... )
(compile 'foo #'(lambda ...))
1) Should this kind of feature be system dependent?
2) Switches aren't really present in CL, is there a better way?
