- global GLOBALprocedure
Allocates a an object representing a global persistent variable. The object should be freed using global-free when it is no longer required. There may be multiple references to the same global variable at the same time in existance. GLOBAL may be a string, symbol or number and will be converted to a string. The result of global is a wrapper procedure, invoking it with a (possibly empty) set of indices is creates a reference to a specific location than can be further accessed and queried.
(define g (global "foo")) (global-set! (g) 123) (global-ref (g)) => "123"
Indices for as many as 10 dimensions may be given:
(global-set! (g 1 2) "xxx") (global-ref (g 1 2)) => "xxx"
