Overview

rope

This is a straightforward Scheme implementation of Ropes.

It's been built & tested on CHICKEN, Chibi, Gauche & Gambit, but should be easy to get working in any R5/R7RS-like implementation (use the rope.sld and rope-r7rs.scm files as a base).

Installation

To install for CHICKEN, use chicken-install:

$ git clone git://bitbucket.org/evhan/rope.git
$ cd rope
$ chicken-install -test
