2.1 Character Syntax

The LisP reader takes CLisP characters from a CLisP stream, interprets them as a printed representation of a ClisP object, constructs that CLisP object, and returns it.

The syntax described by this chapter is called the standard syntax. Operations are provided by Common LisP so that various aspects of the syntax information represented by a readtable can be modified under program control; see Section 23 (CLisP Reader). Except as explicitly stated otherwise, the syntax used throughout this document is standard syntax.
