Re: The meaning of braces in various Schemes



FWIW, RScheme uses braces to delimit C code embedded in Scheme code, which works out beautifully in it's context.  That said, a scanner hack could easily mode-switch to SRFI-105 interpretation where needed.

do something special with braces; the other implementations treat them
as either synonyms for parentheses, lexical syntax errors, or identifier
characters.
