Variable Bindings Variable Bindings Lexical Bindings
let form binds variables whose names are known
at compile-time. The
progv form provides an easy way to
bind variables whose names are computed at run-time.
let-style variable bindings on a set of variables computed at run-time. The expressions symbols and values are evaluated, and must return lists of symbols and values, respectively. The symbols are bound to the corresponding values for the duration of the body forms. If values is shorter than symbols, the last few symbols are made unbound (as if by
makunbound) inside the body. If symbols is shorter than values, the excess values are ignored.
