CDR 8: Generic Equality and Comparison for Common Lisp

Author / Submitter

Marco Antoniotti

Abstract / Rationale

This document presents new generic functions for Common Lisp that provide user hooks for extensible equality and comparison tests, as well as generic hashing. This is in addition to the standard equality and comparison predicates. The current proposal is minimal, in the sense that it just provides one conceptually simple set of hooks in what is considered a cross-language consensus.
