Abstract

This document describes a handful of syntactic extensions to the core bindings of the Scheme programming language. In particular, it proposes to extend the binding forms lambda, let, let* with pattern matching capabilities, to extend the forms let* and or with the ability to handle multiple values, and to extend the form define with the ability of defining "curried" functions.
