Also note that the Common Lisp functions @code{member} and @code{assoc}
use @code{eql} to compare elements, whereas Emacs Lisp follows the
MacLisp tradition and uses @code{equal} for these two functions.
In Emacs, use @code{memq} (or @code{cl-member}) and @code{assq} (or
@code{cl-assoc}) to get functions which use @code{eql} for comparisons.
The functions @code{cl-member} and @code{cl-assoc} use @code{eql},
as in Common Lisp. The standard Emacs Lisp functions @code{memq} and
@code{assq} use @code{eq}, so you can use these if you do not care
about the difference between @code{eq} and @code{eql}.
