Fundamental sequence operations

This module provides the minimum necessary to handle linear container datatypes under a common sequence interface. It's written primary to be used in the bindings egg but secondary to be extendable to a full-fledged sequence package.

Documentation

basic-sequences

(basic-sequences sym ..) procedure

documentation procedure. Shows the exported symbols and the syntax of such an exported symbol, respectively.

seq-exception

(seq-exception loc msg . args) procedure

generates a composite condition of type (exn sequence) with location loc, message msg and arguments args.

seq-ref

(seq-ref seq n) procedure

returns the nth item of the generic sequence seq

seq-tail

(seq-tail seq n) procedure

returns the tail of the generic sequence seq, starting at n

seq-car

(seq-car seq) procedure

returns the zeroth item of the generic sequence seq

seq-cdr

(seq-cdr seq) procedure

returns the tail of the generic sequence seq, starting at 1

seq?

(seq? xpr) procedure

checks, if xpr is a sequence

seq-null?

(seq-null? seq) procedure

checks, if seq is empty.

seq-random-access?

(seq-random-access? seq) procedure

checks, if seq is randomly accessible

seq-db

(seq-db) procedure

shows the sequence database

(seq-db type? ref: ref tail: tail maker: maker ra?: random-access?) procedure

adds a new custom sequence type with predicate type? and keyword arguments ref: tail: maker: ra?: naming procedures to be later accessed as seq-ref, seq-tail, seq-maker and seq-randoam-access? respectively.

Convenience procedures

cons*

(cons* arg ....) procedure

iterative version of cons

list-of

(list-of ok? ...) procedure

returns a predicate which checks, if its argument is a list which passes every predicate ok? ...

pseudo-list-of

(pseudo-list-of ok? ...) procedure

returns a predicate which checks, if its argument is a pseudo-list, which passes every predicate ok? ...

vector-of

(vector-of ok? ...) procedure

returns a predicate which checks, if its argument is a vector which passes every predicate ok? ...

tagged-vector

(tagged-vector kw arg ...) procedure

generates a tagged vector with keyword kw and args arg ...

tagged-vector?

(tagged-vector? xpr) procedure

type predicate

tagged-vector-of

(tagged-vector-of ok? ...) procedure

generates a tagged vector predicate which checks all of its arguments

tagged-vector-ref

(tagged-vector-ref tv k) procedure

access to kth item of tagged vector tv

tagged-vector-tail

(tagged-vector-tail tv k) procedure

returns a tagged subvector of tv starting at k

thunk

(thunk xpr ....) syntax

generates a thunk with body xpr ....

thunk?

(thunk? xpr) procedure

checks if xpr is a thunk, i.e. a nullary procedure

symbol-dispatcher

(symbol-dispatcher alist) procedure

creates a documentation procedure as used in all modules of this library.
