Re: Near final thoughts
What are peoples' current thoughts on the spec as it stands at
sgmiller.org? I feel we are very near completion, but the list is
somewhat quiet. Also, now is a good time to point out typos and other
I have a small question of style. When you look up a function in the
middle of the srfi,
you will see a typical entry like as the one below, and then a newcomer
(or an forgetful old timer) have to look up * and %.
/ procedure:/ *dict?* value *=>* boolean
Returns a non-false value if the provided value is a flexible sequence
/ procedure:/ *%* [equivalence-function] (key . value) ... *=> **
Constructs a % dictionary with the zero or more bindings provided as
it's initial values.
If provided, the keys will be compared with the given equivalence
function, otherwise eqv?
is used. Each operand after the equivalence function to a dictionary
constructor must be a
/ procedure:/ **-keys->list* dictionary *=>* list
Wouldn't it be easier to read if it was
<collection-name>, <dictionary-name> etc
What do the other meta srfis do?
