3== Introduction

5Aubrey Jaffer's [[http://www-swiss.ai.mit.edu/~jaffer/SLIB.html|SLIB]], prepackaged
6for CHICKEN.
7
8Note that SLIB can currently not be properly compiled due to its
9interpreter-oriented design. It may be possible
10to extract and compile single packages,
11but there is no general procedure for compiling the whole of SLIB.
12
13This means that the SLIB extension can currently only be used in the interpreter.
