I had a bug in one of my extensions that eventually turned out to be caused by
set not working as I expected:
;; -*- lexical-binding: t -*- (let ((a nil)) (setq a t) (print a)) (let ((a nil)) (set 'a t) (print a))
when run with
emacs -Q --batch -l temp.el prints:
This seems very strange to me. I was under the impression that
(setq a b) is shorthand for
(set 'a b). What's going on?
