Lexical binding means you can figure out for each occurrence of a name, its binding form. Consider this (probably not exactly CL-correct, but you'll get my drift, I hope): (let ((foo 23)) (let ((name 'foo)) (let ((foo 42)) (set name -1))) foo) At the place 'foo occurs, there's no way to tell what binding it's associated with. In fact, it may be associated with several different bindings at run time, which is a hallmark property of dynamic binding. -- Cheers =8-} Mike Friede, Völkerverständigung und überhaupt blabla
