Here's a list of the names of all classes which are subtypes of FUNCTION
COMPILED-FUNCTION ; Note that FUNCTION and COMPILED-FUNCTION
; are the same type/class in OpenMCL:
; all FUNCTIONs are COMPILED-FUNCTIONs.
STANDARD-GENERIC-FUNCTION ; as per CLhS
GENERIC-FUNCTION ; as per CLhS
CCL:METHOD-FUNCTION ; a special type of function that implements
; a method. (The symbol is also an
; accessor for METHOD objects ad defined in
; the MOP spec.)
CCL::COMBINED-METHOD ; used internally in the CLOS implementation
CCL:FUNCALLABLE-STANDARD-OBJECT ; as per the MOP, a superclass of
CCL:COMPILED-LEXICAL-CLOSURE ; A FUNCTION (compiled function) which
; is not a CCL:METHOD-FUNCTION and is not
; a FUNCALLABLE-STANDARD-OBJECT and which
; references things (variable bindings, usually)
; defined in the enclosing lexical environment.
If anyone does know what *CLOSURES* is in Qi and how it's used, that
information might help them to determine how it should be set for
You could certainly try just setting it to '(FUNCTION) and see what
fails (and why.)
