(interactive) (insert "(lambda (" (read-string "Variables: ") ") ") (save-excursion (insert ")"))) (add-hook 'scheme-mode-hook #'(lambda () (local-set-key "\C-cl" 'lisp-insert-lambda))) It's a "complete" backward-compatible solution that doesn't resort to special extensions of the language. For single argument functions the resulting code is not as readable as the  notation, but IMHO is better than any coriander based recipe. The sense of my previous message is: IMHO, SRFI-26 is not general enough and introduces a negligible improvement over standard Scheme. -- walter pelissero http://www.pelissero.org
