Hello, I'm sure I'm doing something dumb, I just need someone to set
I recently updated to the latest parenscript (as well as sbcl) and got
all of the errors for where I had this.dropdownlist.length type
and changed it to (@ this dropdownlist length) notation.
I had something that used to compile rather quickly it was as simple as this:
(defun somefunction ()
(very long parenscript code)))
if I evaluate just the (ps (very long parenscript code)) everything
is really snappy & I get what I expect.
if I evaluate the whole function, it takes forever (ok, like 10
minutes) again, once things evaluate, I get what I expect
Furthermore, if I start small and add stuff in, it seems to take
exponential time to the amount of code (or more likely my patience
gets exponentially shorter)
the same thing happens if I merely do a (setf somevar (ps (very long
I'm suspecting that I'm hitting some kind of compiler optimization and
I need some kind of pragma.
Thanks for your thoughts/suggestions,
