Guile-Reader: An Extensible Reader Framework for GNU Guile
Guile-reader is a simple framework for building readers for GNU Guile.
The idea is to provide an extensible, yet fast, reader for Guile,
thereby allowing for the rapid implementation of a variety of syntax variants.
Guile already provides facilities for extending its reader (namely
Guile-reader aims to provide a way to easily define new readers, while still allowing to re-use parts of a standard Scheme reader. New reader components (called "token readers") may be defined either as Scheme procedures or C functions. It uses GNU lightning (where available) to compile readers to native code, hence allowing to have performance comparable to that of Guile's built-in reader, but with improved maintainability.
Guile-reader's approach is similar to Common Lisp's "read table" but hopefully more powerful and flexible (for instance, one may instantiate as many readers as needed).
Development questions, issues and bug reports should all go to the mailing-list.
General information is available on the Savannah project page.
Development is managed using the GNU Arch distributed revision control system. You can fetch the latest version of the main branch using the following incantations:
