;; It is often said that Lisp macros need not be used for optimization purposes. This
;; is an exception. SBCL issued the following warning when compiling the MAKE-ARRAY call
;; below:
;; ; note: unable to optimize because: ELEMENT-TYPE is not constant.
;; I don't want to lose the ability to decide which ELEMENT-TYPE to use by using
;; an :ELEMENT-TYPE argument, so I have to arrange for this argument to be processed
;; at compile time.
You can’t perform that action at this time.
