Subject: CLISPIFY transforms (fetch A.B of X) to X':A.B, which confuses DWIM

Lisp Version:  7-May-84 21':48':06

Description: If a record name or one of its field names has a period in its name, then dwimifying a clisp''ified fetch/replace expression  causes the period to preferentially taken to mean "data path ", rather than matching the name or field with the period in its pname.


Test Case:

Assigned To: Masinter


Disposition: [made clispify not pack it in if fetch/replace has field with "':" in it. Should still document that if you define fields with ".", you can''t use the infix path notation.
