4.1.6. Internal Definitions
Exercise 4.16

Implement the method for interpreting internal definitions

In this exercise we implement the method just described for interpreting internal definitions. We assume that the evaluator supports let (see exercise 4.6).

a. Change lookup-variable-value (section 4.1.3) to signal an error if the value it finds is the symbol *unassigned*.

b. Write a procedure scan-out-defines that takes a procedure body and returns an equivalent one that has no internal definitions, by making the transformation described above.

c. Install scan-out-defines in the interpreter, either in make-procedure or in procedure-body (see section 4.1.3). Which place is better? Why?
