skip-while CHAR-LIST #!optional PORTprocedure

Reads characters from the PORT and disregards them, as long as they are mentioned in the CHAR-LIST. The first character (which may be EOF) peeked from the stream that is NOT a member of the CHAR-LIST is returned. This character is left on the stream.

The optional argument PORT defaults to the current input port.
