Outdated egg!

This is an egg for CHICKEN 4, the unsupported old release. You're almost certainly looking for the CHICKEN 5 version of this egg, if it exists.

If it does not exist, there may be equivalent functionality provided by another egg; have a look at the egg index. Otherwise, please consider porting this egg to the current version of CHICKEN.



A Chicken version of the reference implementation for SRFI-38, a facility for reading and writing objects with shared structure.


Alex Shinn


See SRFI-38 document.

This implementation extends write-with-shared-structure to accept the optional keyword parameter #:ignore-strings, which is true will treat strings as normal (nonshared) objects even if repeated.

The utility `make-repl-support-shared-structure' is also provided to support printing results at the REPL with shared structure.
