Re: SRFI 77 Revision available

This page is part of the web mail archives of SRFI 77 from before July 7th, 2015. The new archives for SRFI 77 contain all messages, not just those from before July 7th, 2015.

These points seem to be contradictory:

| Inexact infinities and NaNs are now assumed to exist. In the
| previous draft, their existence was not always assumed, yet was
| sometimes assumed implicitly.

| Although implementations of Scheme are not required to represent
| infinities and NaNs

Examples for div0 and mod0 lack the 0 subscript.

The whole SRFI is long and has redundant fragments, for example the
table of atan branch cuts is written 3 times.
