(chapter :title "Using the SLIB package"
(index "require")
(index "provide")

(p [Aubrey Jaffer maintains a package called
,(emph (ref :url "http://swiss.csail.mit.edu/~jaffer/SLIB" :text "SLIB"))
which is a portable Scheme library which provides compatibility
and utility functions for all standard Scheme implementations. To
use this package, you have just to type])

(fontified-code [(require "slib")])

(p [and follow the instructions given in the ,(emph "SLIB") library
to use a particular package.])

(p [,(bold "Note:") ,(emph "SLIB") uses also the
,(emph "require and provide") mechanism to load components of the
library. Once ,(emph "SLIB") has been loaded, the standard
,(stklos) ,(code "require") and ,(code "provide") are overloaded
such as if their parameter is a string this is the old ,(stklos)
procedure which is called, and if their parameter is a symbol,
this is the ,(emph "SLIB") one which is called.]))
