object-form

Arguments: object &optional package

Returns a lisp form derived from an arbitrary object. When a command that acts on a lisp form (such as macroexpand) is invoked in the Allegro development environment, the default selected-form method finds a lisp form to apply the command to by calling object-form on the selected-object of the selected window. Object-form may return nil if a lisp form cannot be derived in some reasonable way from the object. Object-form is bypassed if there is a more specific selected-form method for a particular command and selected window; these more specific methods sometimes exist when it is not sufficient to funnel through the general selected-object in order to derive a selected-form for the window.
