Contrary to the slib description in
http://www-swiss.ai.mit.edu:80/~jaffer/SLIB.FAQ guile does not make
use of the $SCHEME_LIBRARY_PATH variable. I checked ice-9/slib.scm and
found the definition of library-vicinity is not calculated by
getenv(SCHEME_LIBRARY_PATH) but simply by searching %load-path.
Should I put a
(set! %load-path (append (getenv "SCHEME_LIBRARY_PATH")
in .guile in order to access slib?
Making a link in the guile directory (as described in guile-info) is
not a proper solution as one may not have write acccess to that
directory (/usr/local/share is usually root-owned)
I simply changed ice-9/slib.scm to check SCHEME_LIBRARY_PATH
first. See slib/Template.scm
In .guile I have
(use-modules (ice-9 slib))
ERROR: In expression require:
ERROR: Unbound variable: require
So the .guile is read by guile (see hello display), but the modules
are not activated. When I do on guile-prompt
guile> (use-modules (ice-9 slib))
#<procedure require:require (feature)>
so why does the .guile loading of modules not work?
How can I contribute to the first problem $SCHEME_LIBRARY_PATH ?
