: In the Function class, should the body store the word "compute" or just the expression that follows it? The spec contradicts itself on this issue (in paragraph 2.1).

I meant for the body to be something like "compute (+ a b)"
[so yes there is a typo in the spec]

The idea was for the function body to be syntactically the same as
(and interpreted by the same routine as) a line typed in at the prompt.

By this interpretation, functions like:

function f(x) call g(x, 5)

would also be legal (one function calls another), so the "compute" is not
just a fixed keyword when it appears in a function body.

Sorry for the typo.
