Common Lisp Extensions

This document describes a set of Emacs Lisp facilities borrowed from
Common Lisp.  All the facilities are described here in detail; for more
discussion and examples, Guy L. Steele's `Common Lisp, the Language',
second edition, is the definitive book on Common Lisp.  While this
document does not assume any prior knowledge of Common Lisp, it does
assume a basic familiarity with Emacs Lisp.
