r13933 r14175 980 980 \section{Extensions to the Reader} 981 981 982 We implement a special hexadecimal escape sequence for specifying 983 characters to the Lisp reader, namely we allow a sequences of the form 984 \# \textbackslash Uxxxx to be processed by the reader as character985 whose code is specified by the hexadecimal digits ``xxxx''. The 986 hexadecimal sequence must be exactly four digits long \footnote{This 987 represents a compromise with contemporary in 2011 32bit hosting988 architecures for which we wish to make text processing efficient. 989 Should the User require more control over UNICODE processing we 990 recommend Edi Weisz' excellent work with FLEXISTREAMS which we 991 fully support}, padded by leading zeros for values less than 0x1000.982 We implement a special hexadecimal escape sequence for specifying 32 983 bit characters to the Lisp reader\footnote{This represents a 984 compromise with contemporary in 2011 32bit hosting architecures for 985 which we wish to make text processing efficient.
