Subject': Lisp': No place for DECLARE''s in I.S.OPRS'
Lisp System Date': 11-Apr-84 00':53':49'
LAMBDA''s and PROG''s admit DECLAREs more-or-less in the first "evaluable" position.  I.S.OPRS should do so also; this means that CLISPFOR0 (or whomever) must parst the DECLARE and move it to the "beginning" of the PROG it generates.'

Disposition: [Interlisp-D has no requirement that DECLAREs be lexically first. It is a non-feature of the Interlisp-10 compiler only. I changed the problem type to Documentation, to edit where it talks about DECLARE in the manual to clear this up.]
