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.
