"But I don't follow the 'affects semantics?' column."

I think it means whether the parsing happens before macros are run or not. In Arc, ssyntax happens after macros, so macros can affect the meaning/behavior of ssyntax. In most Lisps, syntax is read before macros, so macros can't change the meaning.


Ah yes, Nulan has changed since that page was added, I'll go in and update it...
