@drewc I saw that section, which is the right option? I see only The ‘=DIRECTORY’ option overrides the setting of the central installation directory.
The ‘~~DIR=DIRECTORY’ option overrides the setting of the DIR installation directory.
These options are not what I am looking for
I need to add paths, not to ovveride the installation directory
Drew Crampsie
If you (or the code) is using "~~" as a prefix to the libs, is that not by its very nature an installed gambit library?
(eval '(begin
        (##namespace ("c#"))
        (##include "~~/lib/header.scm")))
Bradley Lucier

This seems to work

Gambit v4.9.3-1234-g6acd87df

>  (compile-file "c.scm")

This is in the Gambit source directory after a build.

luca regini
thanks @gambiteer this works also for me.
Bradley Lucier
I'm curious: What will you do with the interpreted compiler?
luca regini
I want to study the compiler internals and document them as far as I can. This is something that I wanted to do for quite some time. Being able to step into the code helps considerably.

I have built Gambit on Windows 10 using mingw-w64 using the Mingw-builds installer and choosing architecture: x86_64, threads: posix, exception: seh (mimicking the configuration used by Marc in Gambit’s appveyor.yml) and all seems to work but I get quite frequent access violation crashes that all point to longjmp. Any idea anyone? Any trail would be helpful I have no idea where to go
Guillaume Cartier
Addendum: I just saw the commit: "Use gcc __builtin_setjmp when available” on Jun 13 2020 that seems to be exactly the fix for the crashes I encounter. I will try and build using the latest Gambit and see if it fixes my crashes. Will report the results :)

With the commit "Use gcc __builtin_setjmp when available” I now have both the Mac and Windows crashing. I ended up fixing the crashes by building Gambit with —enable-cpluscplus

Can you update the README file in the repo with the latest supported SRFIs?
Right now Gambit column on the SRFI support table is incomplete because it relies on files in libs/srfi instead, which aren't present in the last tagged version.
It would be much easier to parse README for both head and tagged versions.
Erkin B Altunbaş
I manually added details for Gambit for the time being.
Marc Feeley

@erkin The SRFIs that are builtin are in the list returned by the R7RS procedurefeatures:


Gambit has some additional SRFIs implemented as modules that can be imported with import:

(import (srfi 28))  ;; Basic Format Strings
(import (srfi 41))  ;; Streams.
(import (srfi 64))  ;; A Scheme API for test suites
(import (srfi 69))  ;; Basic hash tables
(import (srfi 132)) ;; Sort Libraries
(import (srfi 158)) ;; Generators and Accumulators

I’ll look into how best to add that information to Gambit’s README.

Erkin B Altunbaş
Currently, the scraper misses 16, 30 and 88.
James Baker
Did anyone decipher why Gambit is producing erratic segfaults while doing a make modules? Seems to compile without issue using clang 10.0.1 albeit painfully slow but failing via gcc 8.3.0
Bradley Lucier
Is it true in all Gambit back-ends that a valid vector index is a fixnum?
Marc Feeley
@gambiteer yes
Vincent Toups
Gambit on Arch comes with a bunch of gambcomp-* scripts. Are they documented anywhere? Are these official ways to use the compiler?
I'm pretty interested in trying out the javascript compiler but I have had trouble finding docs
Drew Crampsie
But, as for "docs", -target js is all that's really needed
@VincentToups look into https://github.com/pre-srfi/webui/
The documentation is not up-to-date
Bradley Lucier

I have a question about style: I'm trying to use case-lambda and error checking in a reasonable way, and I came up with

(define vector->array
  (let ()
    (define (five-args vec interval storage-class mutable? safe?)
      (if (not (boolean? safe?))
          (error "raw-vector->array: The fifth argument is not a boolean: "
                 vec interval storage-class mutable? safe?)
          (four-args vec interval storage-class mutable? safe?)))
    (define (four-args vec interval storage-class mutable? safe?)
      (if (not (boolean? mutable?))
          (error "raw-vector->array: The fourth argument is not a boolean: "
                 vec interval storage-class mutable?)
          (three-args vec interval storage-class mutable? safe?)))
    (define (three-args vec interval storage-class mutable? safe?)
      (if (not (storage-class? storage-class))
          (error "raw-vector->array: The third argument is not a storage-class: "
                 vec interval storage-class)
          (two-args vec interval storage-class mutable? safe?)))
    (define (two-args vec interval storage-class mutable? safe?)
      (if (not (interval? interval))
          (error "raw-vector->array: The second argument is not an interval: "
                 vec interval)
          (let ((indexer (%%interval->basic-indexer interval))
                (body-length (storage-class-length storage-class))
                (body? (storage-class-body? storage-class)))
            (cond ((not (body? vec))
                   (error "raw-vector->array: The first argument is not suitable for a body of the given storage-class: "
                          vec interval storage-class))
                  ((not (= (body-length vec) (interval-volume interval)))
                   (error "vector->array: The length of the first argument is not equal to the volume of the second: "
                          vec interval))
                   (%%finish-specialized-array interval
     ((vec interval)
      (two-args vec interval generic-storage-class (specialized-array-default-mutable?) (specialized-array-default-safe?)))
     ((vec interval storage-class)
      (three-args vec interval storage-class (specialized-array-default-mutable?) (specialized-array-default-safe?)))
     ((vec interval storage-class mutable?)
      (four-args vec interval storage-class mutable? (specialized-array-default-safe?)))
     ((vec interval storage-class mutable? safe?)
      (five-args vec interval storage-class mutable? safe?)))))

Is this reasonable? What do others do?

Rabia Alhaffar
Thanks for gambit scheme!
Are there plans for the Gambit website to start using HTTPS?
Drew Crampsie
I've been using -target js a lot, and have hacked on the g_scm2host and friends.
 name: "ButtonCounter"
 data: (lambda _ (js#jso count: 0))
 (js#function (createElement)
    on: (js#jso
         click: (lambda _ (js#++ (js#ref js#this count:)))))
   (##string-append "Scheme Render?: You clicked me "
                    (##number->string (js#ref js#this count:)) " times"))))
That is a javascript object that becomes a Vue.js component that renders itself ala https://vuejs.org/v2/guide/render-function.html
if you look at the tests here, the "Scheme Render?" button is just that. https://drewc.github.io/gx-quasar/
Have a peek at the logs, in specific number 3, to see how that's possible, and my last few weeks of Gerbil->Gambit->JavaScript fun are there as well :)
Thank you so very much for making it possible!
Drew Crampsie
That scheme comes out in the browser almost identical to this JS:
  name: 'ButtonCounter',
  data: function () {
    return {
      count: 0
  render: function (createElement) {
    return createElement(
        on: {
          click: () => { this.count++ }
        'Render: You clicked me ' + this.count + ' times.');
Vincent Toups
Hey @drewc I'm very interested in this code - is it available anywhere?
In the meantime is it sufficient to wrap scheme functions in g_scm2host to make them ok JS functions?
(This doesn't seem to work but I'm new with the js target)
Drew Crampsie
@VincentToups the code is all in https://github.com/drewc/gx-quasar/ . Have a look at the gx/ directory. They are all gerbil files, not gambit, but close to the same.
I'd say "it all depends". At the same time, I think there's a flaw (that I'll likely mail about and patch and/or wait until someone tells me) in how objects are handled, so I made some hacks/patches here: https://github.com/drewc/gx-quasar/blob/main/gx/gxjs-fixes.ss
