>I think that all three interfaces to string ports (SLIB/Kawa/Guile, >MacScheme/Chez/MzScheme/Larceny/..., and Gambit) should be SRFIs, >but should be separate SRFIs. For the record, MacScheme and Larceny do not have the same string-port interface as Chez Scheme, because the latter clears the string output port when the string is gotten, that is, its GET-OUTPUT-STRING is really GET-OUTPUT-STRING-AND-RESET. I guess that is another variation to handle as a small SRFI. --lars
