Never mind, it's not CL, it's from the ISO standard.
It looks like I'll be parsing TeX, Yucky.

My question was more about "Is there a way to create persistent objects 
in ccl, aside from
SAVE-APPLICATION? Maybe a berkely DB extension or something?

Not that it's a huge deal, but I was thinking about having a common 
library that was separate from the lisp world, which could be augmented 
having to save the world or load a scad of text every time. 
Documentation is something
that is only useful in a development environment, there seems no reason 
to expand
the run time world to include it.

Or am I just being nit-picky?
