Louis Reasoner wonders why the simple-query and disjoin procedures (section 188.8.131.52) are implemented using explicit delay operations, rather than being defined as follows:
(define (simple-query query-pattern frame-stream) (stream-flatmap (lambda (frame) (stream-append (find-assertions query-pattern frame) (apply-rules query-pattern frame))) frame-stream)) (define (disjoin disjuncts frame-stream) (if (empty-disjunction? disjuncts) the-empty-stream (interleave (qeval (first-disjunct disjuncts) frame-stream) (disjoin (rest-disjuncts disjuncts) frame-stream))))
Can you give examples of queries where these simpler definitions would lead to undesirable behavior?
