[HARLEQUIN][Common Lisp HyperSpec (TM)] [Previous][Up][Next] Requiring Non-Null Rest Parameters in the ``Syntax'' Section

In some cases it is useful to refer to all arguments equally as a single aggregation using a rest parameter while at the same time requiring at least one argument. A variety of imperative and declarative means are available in code for expressing such a restriction, however they generally do not manifest themselves in a lambda list. For descriptive purposes within this specification,

F &rest arguments+

means the same as

F &rest arguments

but introduces the additional requirement that there be at least one argument.
