require ID ...procedure

If the extension library ID is not already loaded into the system, then require will lookup the location of the shared extension library and load it. If ID names a library-unit of the base system, then it is loaded via load-library. If no extension library is available for the given ID, then an attempt is made to load the file or ID.scm (in that order) from one of the following locations:

  • the current include path, which defaults to the pathnames given in CHICKEN_INCLUDE_PATH.
  • the current directory

ID should be a string or a symbol.
