Shiro Kawai scripsit: > If you don't like all-caps names, I'd suggest to use > a *consistent* rule to convert well-established names > to schemey-names. E.g. SOCK_STREAM -> *sock-stream* The cl-posix-generalities page on Cliki has this set of mapping rules: A symbol name is derived from the C binding's name, by: 1) uppercasing, then 2) replacing underscore (#\_) characters with the hyphen (#\-) 3) where the fields of a C structure all have a common prefix (for example, "st_"), we omit it. 4) constant names get prefix and suffix '+'s. No other changes to "Lispify" symbol names are made, so creat() becomes CREAT, not CREATE. Rule 1 would not be relevant to Scheme, of course. +...+ names are valid in R7RS but not in R6RS or earlier. Fortran 95 bindings to Posix do similar things. Ada, however, provides higher-level bindings. -- John Cowan <cowan@xxxxxxxx> http://www.ccil.org/~cowan .e'osai ko sarji la lojban.
