[Ecls-list] ecl cvs HEAD broken

This is affecting me as well. It looks like the change in 30apr08 in
src/h/eval.h to

1.6          (jgarcia  30-Apr-08): #define CAR(x)		(Null(x)? (x) :


1.1          (jjgarcia 26-Jun-01): #define CAR(x)		(x)->cons.car

is what did it. The compiler is apparently generating CAR(x) = foo
where it needs to be creating ECL_RPLACA(x,foo) statements.

Applying the attached patch should fix it- since the offending code is
always part of a closure, changing:
(defun wt-env (clv) (wt "CAR(CLV" clv ")"))

in src/cmp/cmpvar.lsp to:

(defun wt-env (clv) (wt "ECL_CONS_CAR(CLV" clv ")"))

should do it. The patch is also available at:


if you can't receive attachments (for whatever reason)
