Call arbitrary values as functions
This extension allows user-defined behaviour of calling non-procedural data. When a procedure-call is evaluated with a datum in operator position that is not a procedure, then the following TinyCLOS generic function is called:
Called when OPERATOR was applied to the argument list ARGUMENTS. The default implementation specialized on the operator class
<top> signals an error. Implement own specializations for this generic to get custom behaviour.
This hook will not be called in code compiled in unsafe mode.
; Regular expressions in operator position do a string-match: (define-method (object-apply (x <regexp>) args) (apply string-match x args) ) ((regexp "([A-Z]+).*") "ABC, def")
