#450 closed defect (invalid)

special keywords passed through process-run-function

Seen as

cl-user> (ccl:process-run-function "Anon" (lambda (&rest args) (print args))
                                   :use-standard-initial-bindings nil)
-| (:use-standard-initial-bindings nil)

It would be nice if these arguments were removed, or as the manual seems to imply, the args weren't passed through to function at all.

I'm not sure if there's an example in the documentation that suggests otherwise, but one would create a process and run a function that didn't use the standard initial bindings and printed its arguments via:

(process-run-function '(:name "Anon" :use-standard-initial-bindings nil)
                       (lambda (&rest args) (print args))) ; hope there are enough close parens here

PROCESS-RUN-FUNCTION's first argument should be either a list of keyword/value pairs (passed to MAKE-PROCESS) or an atom (usually a string);

(process-run-function "name" ...)

is shorthand for:

(process-run-function '(:name "name") ...)

Any forms to the right of the function are just evaluated normally and their values are just passed as arguments to the process's initial function; those values don't affect process creation or startup options.

I think that your example behaves as it should (but perhaps not as you expected); unless there's a documentation bug that led to that expectation, I don't see a bug here.

  • Resolution set to invalid
  • Status changed from assigned to closed

Ah yes, I see that now that I look at %process-run-function more closely; I merely assume that Bordeaux-Threads used the function correctly.
