moremacros

Documentation

Various useful forms.

moremacros

Usage

(require-extension moremacros)

str#

(str# STRING) syntax

Allows substitution of embedded Scheme expressions prefixed with # and optionally enclosed in curly brackets. Two consecutive #s are translated to a single #.

Similar to the #<# multi-line string.

type-case

(type-case EXPRESSION [(TYPE-CASE BODY ...) ...])) syntax

Expands into a form that selects a TYPE-CASE based on the type of the EXPRESSION.

A TYPE-CASE is:

symbol
the base name of a type predicate
(symbol symbol...)
a list of base names
else
an else clause

The actual name of the predicate is built from the base name and a ? suffix. So a base name number has the predicate number?.

(use moremacros)

(type-case 23
  ((symbol string char) 'symbolic)
  (number               'numeric)
  (else                 'otheric) )
;=> numeric

type-case*

(type-case* EXPRESSION [(TYPE-TEST BODY ...) ...])) syntax

Like type-case but binds local variable it to the value of EXPRESSION.

(use moremacros)

(type-case* 23
  ((symbol string char) (list it 'symbolic) )
  (number               (list it 'numeric) )
  (else                 (list it 'otheric) ) )
;=> (23 numeric)

whennot

(whennot TEST [BODY ...])) syntax

Synonym for miscmacros#unless.

swap-set!

(swap-set! VAR1 VAR2)) syntax

Swap settings of VAR1 & VAR2.

Like (exchange! VAR1 VAR2) but lower overhead.

fluid-set!

(fluid-set! VAR VAL ...)) syntax

Set each variable VAR to the value VAL in parallel.

stiff-set!

(stiff-set! VAR VAL ...)) syntax

Set each variable VAR to the value VAL in series.

set!/op

(set!/op VAR OP ARG...)) syntax

Sets VAR to the value of (OP ARG...), where an occurrence of <> in ARG... is replaced with VAR.

When there is no occurrence of <> in ARG... the template (OP <> ARG...) is used.

Similar to the C language family <l-value> <bin-op-assign> <r-value>.

assure

(assure EXPRESSION [ERROR-ARGUMENT...])) syntax

When EXPRESSION yields value #f invoke (error ERROR-ARGUMENT...), otherwise return value.

make-reference-let

(make-reference-let NAME REFERENCE-FUNCTION) syntax

NAME is a symbol, the name of the generated reference-let macro.

REFERENCE-FUNCTION is a (procedure (* * *) *) with arguments:

The REFERENCE-FUNCTION is to return the value for KEY in the TABLE, otherwise the DEFAULT value.

The generated macro has the signature:

(NAME TABLE (VAR | (VAR) | (VAR KEY [DEFAULT]) ...) BODY ...) syntax
TABLE
some data-structure instance that reifies a set of key+value abstraction
KEY
identifier for a possible entry in the TABLE
DEFAULT
in case an entry for the KEY does not exist

Decompose TABLE entries into variable bindings. Should the KEY not be a symbol, or the desired variable name VAR, as 'VAR, is not the key, the (VAR KEY [DEFAULT]) form can be used.

The default for DEFAULT is #f.

The BODY... is evaluated with the specified bindings.

See hash-let for an example of use.

hash-let

Usage

(require-extension hash-let)

hash-let

(hash-let HASH-TABLE (VAR | (VAR) | (VAR KEY [DEFAULT]) ...) BODY ...) syntax

Decompose HASH-TABLE entries into variable bindings. Should the KEY not be a symbol, or the desired variable name VAR is not the key, the (VAR KEY [DEFAULT]) form can be used.

The default value for a missing hash-table entry is #f but can be specified with the (VAR KEY DEFAULT) form.

The BODY... is evaluated with the specified bindings.

(use hash-let srfi-69)

(define tbl (make-hash-table))

(hash-table-set! tbl 'abc "commercial network")
(hash-table-set! tbl "abc" "commercial network")
(hash-table-set! tbl 'cbs "commercial network")
(hash-table-set! tbl "cbs" "commercial network")

(hash-let tbl ((abc)
               (cbs "cbs")
               (pbs (string-append "p" "bs") #t)
               tbs)
  (print 'abc " is a " abc) (print "cbs" " is a " cbs)
  (print (string-append "p" "bs") " is a " pbs)
  (print 'tbs " is a " tbs) )

This prints the following:

abc is a commercial network
cbs is a commercial network
pbs is a #t
tbs is a #f

Numeric Macros

Usage

(require-extension numeric-macros)

++

(++ VAL) syntax

Read-only increment.

When VAL is a numeric literal the strongest operation available is used in the generated expression, based on the type of the literal.

--

(-- VAL) syntax

Read-only decrement.

When VAL is a numeric literal the strongest operation available is used in the generated expression, based on the type of the literal.

fx++

(fx++ VAL) syntax

Read-only fixnum increment.

fx--

(fx-- VAL) syntax

Read-only fixnum decrement.

fp++

(fp++ VAL) syntax

Read-only flonum increment.

fp--

(fp-- VAL) syntax

Read-only flonum decrement.

fl++

(fl++ VAL) syntax

Read-only flonum increment.

R6RS nomenclature.

fl--

(fl-- VAL) syntax

(--! VAR) syntax

Mutable decrement.

fx++!

(fx++! VAR) syntax

Mutable fixnum increment.

fx--!

(fx--! VAR) syntax
