Ingenious! Do you have a github account? You should be the one to fix this in anarki :)

I'd like to run some tests to make sure it does not cause much problem.

I found this one:

But it failed with following error when using arc3.1.

  arc> (load "unit-test.arc")
  arc> (rat)
  Error: "_dfn: undefined;\n cannot reference undefined identifier"

That's a good idea. Did the tests pass without your changes?

I've added a few piecemeal tests over the years (all the .t files in the repo), and there's also some tests in my curated repo ( All those seem ok..


Looks like dfn is a rainbow innovation:


Update 1 hour later: almost all rainbow tests pass! I had to disable the dfn tests, and the ssyntax tests at the bottom of core-evaluation-test were hanging. Other than that it's all good.

I'll make a pull request later.

Thanks for the commit! I've merged and given you commit rights to anarki.

I've also added/plagiarized rainbow's tests to the repo: Joys of the perl artistic license.

There's still a couple of syntax tests that are failing, likely because of test harness issues. And I'd like to unify all the different tests into a single framework. For future work..


Update 43 minutes later: it turns out rainbow's ssyntax precedence rules were different. Perhaps anarki changed at some point. Those tests are now fixed.

Thanks, well done.
