I realize Lispusers packages are unsupported, but is there any mechanism for fixing/removing those that don''t work?  I tried to use DATETIME and was unable to make it do anything useful.  In particular, a call to PARSEDATETIME, eg. (PARSEDATETIME "11 PM") results in an EOF error.'
It seems that the eof character they are appending to the string (the vertical bar) is not recognized as such.  The READ in EXPANDINPUT then runs off the end.  I tried using a different character (a $) and it worked (I made $ a breakchr in DTRDTBL).  Unfortunately, the $ caused other problems later on.  The source doesn''t seem to have been changed since 1978.  Has anyone used it lately besides me?'
