Hi,

from [[info:elisp:Anonymous%20Functions]]:

so #'foo is the same as 'foo but indicates that foo is a function

As I understand it (from my book on Common Lisp) #'some-function is used
to quote function names.  'some-function quotes a variable.

It means "Get me the function with the following name" - without the #',
Lisp would treat some-function as the name of a variable and look up the
value of the variable, not the function.
