SRFI 39: Parameter objects

by Marc Feeley

status: final (2003-06-30)

keywords: Binding, Parameters

library name: parameters


This SRFI defines parameter objects, the procedure make-parameter to create parameter objects and the parameterize special form to dynamically bind parameter objects. In the dynamic environment, each parameter object is bound to a cell containing the value of the parameter. When a procedure is called the called procedure inherits the dynamic environment from the caller. The parameterize special form allows the binding of a parameter object to be changed for the dynamic extent of its body.
