11.2.14 unexport Function

unexport symbols &optional package    t

Arguments and Values:
symbols - a designator for a list of symbols.

package - a package designator. The default is the current package.

unexport reverts external symbols in package to internal status; it undoes the effect of export.

unexport works only on symbols present in package, switching them back to internal status. If unexport is given a symbol that is already accessible as an internal symbol in package, it does nothing.

 (export (intern "CONTRABAND" (make-package 'temp)) 'temp)   T
 (find-symbol "CONTRABAND")   NIL, NIL 
 (use-package 'temp)   T 
 (unexport 'contraband 'temp)   T
 (find-symbol "CONTRABAND")   NIL, NIL

Side Effects:
Package system is modified.

Affected By:
Current state of the package system.

Exceptional Situations:
If unexport is given a symbol not accessible in package at all, an error of type package-error is signaled.

The consequences are undefined if package is the keyword package or the common-lisp package.
