<nalaginrut>morning guilers~
<b4283>jmd: i'm confused too, the manual says that both could be #f
<nalaginrut>what's the problem?
<b4283><jmd> What is wrong with this : (scm-error #f #f "~S is not a string" 10 #f)
<nalaginrut>well, it says DATA could be #f if key is not the doc listed value
<nalaginrut>I don't think it means key could be #f
<b4283>it seems this function is used to do C FFI
<nalaginrut>why not use 'throw' or 'error' directly
<jmd>Is there a way to convert an expression in to a string?
<ft>(format #f "~a" '(+ 23 42)) ⇒ "(+ 23 42)"
<jmd>ft Thanks
<ft>If your expression contains strings,though... (format #f "~a" '(+ "test")) ⇒ "(+ test)"
<ft>~s might be better than ~a in that case.
<jmd>I wanted it without the enclosing ( )
