Dear SRFI-56 subscribers,
Would it not be a good idea to add
file positioning primitives
to an implementation for binary i/o.
This would make 'record based' i/o possible, with
seeks to records, etc; and it would be a logical
next step, because binary i/o provides predefined
sizes for 'variable types'.
Bigloo has for instance:
Return the current position (a character number) in the port.
(set-input-port-position! port pos)
(set-output-port-position! port pos)
Set the current position (a character number) in the port.
