SRFI 5: A compatible let form with signatures and rest arguments

by Andy Gaynor

status: final (1999/4/26)

Abstract

The named-let incarnation of the let form has two slight inconsistencies with the define form. As defined, the let form makes no accommodation for rest arguments, an issue of functionality and consistency. As defined, the let form does not accommodate signature-style syntax, an issue of aesthetics and consistency. Both issues are addressed here in a manner which is compatible with the traditional let form but for minor extensions.
