There has been discussion about character i/o in this SRFI. I personally think without character i/o SRFI56 is kind of handicapt. At least utf8 encodering must be supported I think. Note: Often with binary I/O one will want to do something like: write_int(utf8-byte-size(some-string)) write-utf8-string(some-string). -- Hans'
