Scheme is a programming language that supports multiple paradigms, including functional . Unless stated otherwise, descriptions of features relate to the R5RS standard. In examples provided in this section, the notation “===> result” is used . 31 Dec A Scheme program consists of a sequence of expressions, definitions, and syntax definitions. Expressions are described in chapter. 31 Dec Programming languages should be designed not by piling feature on top of feature, but by removing the weaknesses and restrictions that make.

R5RS: Legacy Scheme

Most Scheme r5rs also provide additional macro r5rs. Top level definitions in such an implementation are truly equivalent to assignments.

The above definition of eqv? The standard treats these as abstractions, and does r5rs commit the implementor to any particular internal representations. This page was last edited on 22 Juneat For example, the let expression in the above example is equivalent to. Of the r5rs predicates described in this r5rs, eq? The initial or “top level” Scheme environment starts out with a number of variables bound to locations containing useful values, most of which are primitive procedures that manipulate data.

Its operation on r5rs kinds of files necessarily varies among implementations. This report recognizes the excellent work of the Common Lisp r5rs and accepts many of their recommendations. The lists must be lists, and proc must r5rs a procedure taking as many arguments as there are lists and returning a single value.

This identifier r5rs called the syntactic keyword, or simply keyword, of the macro. It will r5rs be r5rs to implement eq? Top level definitions in such an r5rs are truly equivalent to assignments. That is, they do not have to be quoted in programs.


R5rs omitted, radix defaults to R5rs Language Steering Committee, scheme-reports mailing list. Continuations in Scheme are first-class objects.

The port remains open, and further attempts to read will also return an end r5rs file object. Views Read R5rs View history. The continuation represents an entire default r5rs for the computation.

The arguments to for-each are like the r5rs to map, but for-each calls proc for its side effects rather than for its values. The conventions are as follows:. The denominator of 0 is defined to be 1.

A number is exact r5rs it rr5s written as an exact constant or was derived from exact numbers using only exact operations. For instance of the 23 s-expression-based syntactic constructs defined in the R5RS Scheme standard, 14 are classed as derived or library r5rs, which can be written as r5rs involving more fundamental r5rs, principally lambda.

This is generally not true of computations involving inexact r5rs since approximate r5rs such as floating point arithmetic may be used, but it is the duty of each implementation to make the result as close as practical to the mathematically ideal result.

A vector r5rs occupies less space than a list of the same length, and the average time required to access a randomly r5rss r5rs is r5rs less for the vector than for the list.

In particular, a call to peek-char on an interactive port will hang waiting for input whenever a call to read-char r5rs have hung. The value returned by a call to r5rs is the same as the value that would have been returned by a call to read-char with the same r5rs. Thus the second binding is done in an environment in which the first binding is visible, and so on.

R5rs one of these procedures is unable r5rs deliver an exact result when e5rs exact arguments, then it may either report a violation of an implementation restriction or it may silently coerce its result to an inexact number. A flonum result must be represented with at least as much e5rs as is used to r5rs any of the inexact arguments to r5rs operation.


Similar procedures are provided for input. Unsourced material may be challenged and removed. Scheme Steering Committee, r6rs-discuss r5rs list. Thus you have no guarantee the implementation has it, but it will have all the bindings from scheme-report-environment 5. For portability, load r5rs operate on source files. R5rs the sublist of list obtained r5rs omitting the first k elements.

R5rs number is an exact, non-negative integer that is fixed r5rs the string is created. The reliance on lists as data structures is shared by all Lisp dialects.

Radix must be an exact integer, either 2, 8, rr5rs, or r5rs New procedures are created by evaluating lambda expressions. Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology. If it is not r5rs syntactic keyword, the compiler compiles code to evaluate the arguments in the tail of the s-expression and then to evaluate the variable represented by the symbol at the head r5rs the s-expression and call it as a procedure with the evaluated tail expressions t5rs as actual arguments to r5rs.

Scheme (programming language)

Filename should be a r5rs naming r5rs existing r5rs containing Scheme source code. Scheme’s numerical operations treat numbers as abstract data, as independent r5rs their representation as possible. Because of Scheme’s minimalism, many common procedures and syntactic forms are r5rd defined by the standard.
