(letrec-syntax <bindings> <body>)syntax

Syntax: Same as for let-syntax.

Semantics: The <body> is expanded in the syntactic environment obtained by extending the syntactic environment of the letrec-syntax expression with macros whose keywords are the <keyword>s, bound to the specified transformers. Each binding of a <keyword> has the <bindings> as well as the <body> within its region, so the transformers can transcribe expressions into uses of the macros introduced by the letrec-syntax expression.

```(letrec-syntax
((my-or (syntax-rules ()
((my-or) #f)
((my-or e) e)
((my-or e1 e2 ...)
(let ((temp e1))
(if temp
temp
(my-or e2 ...)))))))
(let ((x #f)
(y 7)
(temp 8)
(let odd?)
(if even?))
(my-or x
(let temp)
(if y)
y)))                ===>  7```
