spotted.
It sounds like Clive's main problem was elsewhere, but in any event that -no- coding is something to be careful of. It just seems counter-intuitive to me to have `constant' really mean "noconstant". And, it is easy to make mistakes if you don't understand how the -no- coding works, e.g. use `nocons' instead of `cons'. I just try to avoid it myself, by doing things like Scott suggested, e.g. have the syntax statement say Nocons instead of nocons.
