<amz3>ijp: you are talking about lambda* or lambda?
<amz3>I see nothing special in lambda* nor lambda
<ijp>amz3: the difficulty with guile is that keywords are not always keyword arguments e.g. (list #:foo) returns a list containing a keyword
<ijp>also, it's not just lambda*, but case-lambda
<amz3>yeah, case-lambda is special
<ijp>but they are both handled by the same machinery under the hood
<amz3>where is defined lambda* I can't find it in the source
<ijp>probably psyntax
<ijp>it doesn't exist in tree-il, and the macroexpander is the scheme->tree-il compiler
<amz3>ok tx
<amz3>indeed it must be in psyntax
<amz3>i skipped that file during my first grep
<bavier1>what would be the benefit of setting C_INCLUDE_PATH in a build phase instead of passing CPPFLAGS to a configure script?

<bavier1>hmm, oops, wrong channel

<manumanumanu>ijp: I'm going to go with your keyword idea. Thanks for the tip.
<manumanumanu>It is miles better than introducing two complementary bidings.

<amz3>did anyone try forward.scm ( ?
<amz3>how do you think I can improve something in forward.scm to make it easier and/or more suitable for you?
