HELP ITEMREAD Steven Hardy January 78 itemread() -> item This procedure (of no arguments) reads an item from the input stream (one of its main uses is in macro definitions). For example: itemread() -> x; hithere x => ** hithere ITEMREAD expands macros (see MACRO). * READITEM doesn't expand macros. If a word read by ITEMREAD has IDENTPROPS equal to UNDEF then there is a possibility that it might be a macro which should be auto-loaded from the library. ITEMREAD checks for this possibility.
