- "It is also difficult to write in many high-level programming languages which do not provide access to primitive operations, like pointer arithmetic."
- Probably, as Lisp provides pointer-related list operations in its core. Anyway, commented out for now until resolved. NB: Longer discussions belong in the talk page. User:Jafet.vixle
- Well, I looked back through my copy of Gosper's paper, and he didn't include any source code, but he also didn't seem to say anything along the lines of this being a low-level sort of task - his use of Flavors, an OO extension, would seem to argue against it. Unless we can find some sort of statement to that effect from another implentor, I say it's best left out. --Gwern (contribs) 20:05 30 March 2007 (GMT)
