    i don’t feel I have any understanding about setv variable scoping

    Although the author doesn’t say so explicitly, from an outsiders perspective, this seems to be hylangs biggest negative, it doesnt support let. It was removed from the language after several attempts to implement it correctly.

      Yes, that’s a succinct way of putting it. Indeed, when I am using a lisp, I usually am aware of dynamic / lexical scope to some degree, but like I say I am not really sure where hy is putting them. I’m sure it’s all documented and demonstrable of course.
