Manual Reference Pages - DATA::SEXPRESSION::SYMBOL (3)
Data::SExpression::Symbol -- A Lisp symbol read by Data::SExpression
A Data::SExpression::Symbol represents a lisp symbol. Symbols are
usually used as opaque objects that can be compared with each other,
but are not intended to be used for other operations.
There are two kinds of symbols, interned, and uninterned. Most
symbols are interned. There is only ever one interned instance
of the Symbol class for a given name.
STRINGIFICATION AND COMPARISON
Interned symbols stringify to their ->name. Uninterned symbols
stringify to #:$name, after the Common Lisp convention.
Interned symbols are eq to their name. Uninterned symbols are not eq
to anything except themself.
Returns a new interned symbol with the given NAME
Returns a new uninterned symbol with the given NAME
Returns the symbols name, as passed to new or uninterned.
Returned true iff the symbol is interned
