Date: Thu, 1 Jan 2004 07:04:52 -0800 (PST) From: Sebastian Egner <sebastian_egner@xxxxxxxxx> [proposed string procedures elided ...] This proposal separates the issue of character encoding from the issue of null-terminated strings vs. buffers with length. Yes, it also insulates the C code from Scheme's internal representation of strings, which may not be as single contiguous blocks of characters. Unless Mike objects we'll add this, or something like it to the SRFI. -Richard Kelsey
