9. Responding To Dumb Requests For Help With Homework Assignments



(Reportedly from Ludlum's "The Eiger Sanction;" this is the sort of thing that Clint Eastwood would indeed play well...)


Can anyone help me create a function(s) to run-line encode binary lists? (Common Lisp)

--Robert Miller (our erstwhile student who needs assistance with an assignment)  

A student comes to a young professor's office hours. She glances down the hall, closes his door, kneels pleadingly.

"I would do anything to pass this exam."

She leans closer to him, flips back her hair, gazes meaningfully into his eyes.

"I mean..." she whispers, "...I would do...anything!!!"

He returns her gaze. "Anything???"

"Yes,... Anything!!!"

His voice turns to a whisper. "Would you ... study???"
