The function names in this srfi, while descriptive, tend to be pretty long. I would like to discuss possible abbreviations for "stream". Personally, I like "$" as an abbreviation. It suggests "stream" because it looks like an 'S'. Furthermore, it suggests laziness, as '$' is lazy application in haskell, and Okasaki uses '$' as notation for suspensions in his _Purely Functional Data Structures_. Unfortunately, '$' cannot begin an identifier in R5RS. Here are some legal variations: Instead of "stream-map", _$-map S$-map map-$ L$-map (suggests "lazy list") C$-map (suggests "lazy cons") S-map Phil-map __________________________________________________ Do you Yahoo!?
