If I understand correctly, (lambda ...) on its own has always worked, and it's never been strictly necessary to add (quote ...) or (function ...) around it.

Do you know why that recommendation started, and should I understand that the reasoning for it has now evaporated? Best wishes, Neil [-- Attachment #2: Type: text/html, Size: 998 bytes --]
