This egg provides a way to do on-the-fly compilation of source code and load it into the running process.
- compile-file FILENAME #!key options output-file loadprocedure
Compiles the Scheme source file FILENAME into a dynamically loadable library by invoking the csc compiler driver. If the library can be successfully created and load is not given or true, the file is loaded into the current Scheme process. options may be a list of strings which are passed as additional command line options to csc. If output-file is not given, then the compiled file is stored in a temporary location and will be deleted when the process exits successfully. When compilation and loading succeeds, the name of the compiled file is returned, otherwise #f is returned.
- loading the same compiled file multiple times is only supported on Linux in the moment and should be considered unreliable. For this reason, a new temporary file is created for every invocation of compile-file, unless an explicit output file name is given.
- this procedure is compatible to the scheme-compile-file command in emacs' scheme-mode.
A parameter that holds a list of default options that should be given to csc after invocation of the compile-file procedure. The initial default options are -scrutinize -O2 -d2.
- try-compile CODE #!key cc cflags ldflags compile-only c++procedure
Returns #t if the C code in CODE compiles and links successfully, or #f otherwise. The keyword parameters cc (compiler name, defaults to the C compiler used to build this system), cflags and ldflags accept additional compilation and linking options. If compile-only is true, then no linking step takes place. If the keyword argument c++ is given and true, then the code will be compiled in C++ mode.
compile-file-options is not used.

- Fix behaviour of try-compile when verbose flag is #f.
- Taken from the utils unit and released as an egg for CHICKEN 5.
