I'm trying to use
cl-lib early in my
init.el. The function I'm using (
cl-some) is autoloaded, so I expect that don't need an explicit
require, yet I get a void-function error if I don't explicitly
require. Sounds like other people have this problem as well: https://stackoverflow.com/a/30848971/245173
;; OK (require 'cl-lib) (cl-some #'identity '(nil))
;; void-function the first time, OK subsequently (cl-some #'identity '(nil))
require necessary if the function is marked for autoloading? Why does it generate an error and also load the library?
Update: if I
(load-library "cl-loaddefs.el"), which is where the autoload for
cl-some is, it works correctly the first time. So it seems like
cl-loaddefs isn't being loaded. Why not?
