Nice work.

  • can you push to your gh-pages branch, so than we can see how the page looks like ?

So, this is a reference rather than a recipe.

  • you can reference it from the iteration page
  • did you check if you can expand or add examples there ?

`iterate` is a powerful iteration facility for Common Lisp, and a alternative to `loop`. As opposed to `loop`, `iterate` is more lispy, extensible, besides being more powerful.

We don't have a style guide, but I'm for removing the CL-USER>. Yes ?

more logical to put it has a subsection ? (with an indentation level)


See [The Iterate Manual] for a more detailed explanation of the various facilities. Also check [Other Resources on Iterate](#other-resources-on-iterate).

I find a bit rough to see high-level highlights straight away, without examples beforehand. Maybe, do you mean a reader comes here after having read the examples of the "iteration" page ?

Hmm... Thanks for reviewing.

So, this is a reference rather than a recipe.

  • you can reference it from the iteration page
  • did you check if you can expand or add examples there ?

Yup, I'll agree that it is more of a reference than a recipe - a recipe would be more like illustrating what "iteration really means"; for which, unfortunately, I do not have the time. So, should I close this PR, and push just the additional line pointing to the iteration page in the reference section?
