library name: generators-and-accumulators
This SRFI defines utility procedures that create, transform, and consume generators.
A generator is simply a procedure with no arguments that works
as a source of values. Every time it is called,
it yields a value. Generators may be finite or infinite; a finite
generator returns an end-of-file object to indicate that it is exhausted.
read are generators that
generate characters, lines, and objects from the current input port.
Generators provide lightweight laziness.
This SRFI also defines procedures that return accumulators. An accumulator is the inverse of a generator: it is a procedure of one argument that works as a sink of values.
