|| ||Mon, 23 Sep 2002 23:09:27 +0100|
This is a round-up of news and announcements related to the
Scheme programming language, mostly taken from newsgroups,
mailing lists and web sites that I'm aware of. Feel free to
send me more. The aim is to publish in multiple formats on the
web each week, but more on that very soon. (Date: 2002-09-23)

New paper: XML, XPath, XSLT implementations as SXML, SXPath, and SXSLT
The paper briefly describes SXML and SXML tools, and then
elaborates a longer, practical example of a real-life SXML
application. The paper can serve as a sort of a documentation
for the SXML tools. (PDF format link)
Swindle for PLT 202
Swindle is a collection of modules that extend PLT Scheme.
The main feature which started this project is a CLOS-like object
system based on Tiny-CLOS from Xerox, but there is a lot more
-- a generalized Lisp-like `set!' and related functionality,
lambda argument &-keywords, a lot of convenient syntaxes etc.
SRFI 37: args-fold: a program argument processor
Draft SRFI for processing command-line arguments. Currently,
many implementations provide access to this through an argv
structure, but not always in a similar manner.
GNU TeXmacs 188.8.131.52
TeXmacs is a scientific document editor, inspired by both TeX
and Emacs, but with an interface in Guile Scheme. This release
implements tab-completion for non-structured text, European-style
numbering and long articles.
Scribe is a Scheme system for text processing. It looks like a
mark-up language like HTML, but is actually a true programming
language. New version enables easy CGI execution.
Development release of this header file wrapper generator.
Languages supported include Guile and MzScheme. This version
is mostly bugfixes, but includes enhancements to overloading,
template handling and C++ exception handling.
Generic tournament processing library, for guile. Initial
release. Includes a reference client application. Comments from
guile-based developers and tournament processing specialists
