When trying to use the seq-extract of the Om-Tristan Library I get the following message :

Error while evaluating the box seq-extract : the variable deb is unbound.

I understand there might be something to change in the lisp code but since I’m not familiar with it it’s tough to find out what.

Any help would be welcome :-)

Thanks a lot

Hi Paddy. The seq-extract function includes this same bug in all currently available versions of OMTristan (2.0, 3.0, 3.1, 3.2, 3.3). Seems some of the original french variable-names were missed during translation at some time.

However, it’s a very simple fix. Just replace ‘deb’ with ‘begin’ in the function body (It’s in the file sources/TMlibrairie-OM.lisp).

OMTristan isn’t ‘officially supported’ by the OM devs, so better ask those maintaining that lib to put out a bug-fix release.

Checking now i see there are several incompabilities between OMTristan and core OM, seems it suffers from bit rot. If this lib is still useful someone should update it, remove cruft, and keep maintaining it. Or perhaps include a cleaned version together with the standard libs in the ‘omlibraries’ git project?

Thanks a lot for the quick answer, I will try that.

And yeah, a bug fix release would be appreciated. I’ll try to write to R. Hirz, maybe she knows if something’s planned.

Best regards
