Status

Function: status (feature)

Function: status (feature, <item>) Returns information about the presence or absence of certain system-dependent features.

* status (feature) returns a list of system features. These include Lisp version, operating system type, etc. The list may vary from one Lisp type to another.

* status (feature, item) returns true if <item> is on the list of items returned by status (feature) and false otherwise. status quotes the argument <item>. The quote-quote operator defeats quotation. A feature whose name contains a special character, such as a hyphen, must be given as a string argument. For example, status (feature, "ansi-cl").

See also sstatus.

The variable features contains a list of features which apply to mathematical expressions. See features and featurep for more information.
