Re: Scheme style auto-resizing hashtable (fwd)
I do think it's useful to be able to store a pointer into a list (or
hash-table or whatever), for later use.
With map, and for-each etc you have to process the whole lot there and
BTW, a question for CLOS people - does CLOS have a way to iterate over
various data structures
in a consistent way? Like is there a map and for-each that works with
lists, vectors, and hash-tables etc etc?
If I am using tiny-clos and I want such a thing, what would be the right
way to do it? Would it be to redefine map and for-each to be a generic
function, or would it be to write something else like (map-generic) and
