It’s Snow Time!

The Snowfort is “a repository of Scheme packages that are portable to several popular implementations of Scheme”. I think the developers of Snow have taken the correct approach by targeting the more featureful Scheme implementations, which share quite a bit of useful functionality in excess of R5RS. However, at the moment the packages look like they’re written under the assumption the host Scheme has no useful module system, as the packages I looked at all prefixed their exports with snow-. The module system in R6RSshould fix this, so hopefuly these annoying prefixes will go away.

There’s snow business like snow business, snow business I snow…
