(define <generated> ...)
Well now, we're just all too complacent here on this list.
I have a little question about define-syntax. What's the following
program supposed to do?
(define foo 20)
(begin (define foo 30)
(define name (+ foo 4))))))
foo => 20 or 30 ?
Of course, X will be 34 in either case. But what I want to know is
whether the identifier that gets defined by the macro's (define foo
...) is the generated identifier (alias) or FOO.
I just tried this in two different implementations and got 30 in both,
but I'm not so sure that I should have. After all, the macro's
definition of FOO is a "binding inserted by the macro," isn't it?
Oh, I forgot, DEFINE's for top-level variables might or might not
introduce bindings, so maybe this is implementation-dependent?
