The T system constant is built into XLISP. T represents 'true',
as oppossed to
(setq myvar T) ; set MYVAR to True (setq myvar 'T) ; T and 'T both evaluate to T (if t (print "this will print") ; if, then, else (print "this won't print"))
Note: Be careful with the T value. It is possible to do a setq on T and set it to other values like NIL. Some operations will still return proper T or NIL values, but the system will be in a bad state.
