Egg: Schelog Error: unbound variable: %set-of

Reported by: bstrecker Owned by:
Priority: minor Milestone: someday
Component: extensions Version: 4.9.x
Keywords: Schelog Cc:
Estimated difficulty:


After installing the Schelog egg, I began working through the documentation on the Schelog documentation site ( When I got to the %set-of descriptions, I found that my code choked on %set-of, though it works with %bag-of.

Code (loaded via emacs c-c, c-l, Chicken 4):

(require-extension schelog)

(define %knows

(%rel ()

[('Odysseus 'TeX)]
[('Odysseus 'Scheme)]
[('Odysseus 'Prolog)]
[('Odysseus 'Penelope)]
[('Penelope 'TeX)]
[('Penelope 'Prolog)]
[('Penelope 'Odysseus)]
[('Telemachus 'TeX)]
[('Telemachus 'calculus)]))

(define %computer-literate

(%rel (person)


(%knows person 'TeX)
(%knows person 'Scheme)]


(%knows person 'TeX)
(%knows person 'Prolog)]))

Program run (copied from REPL):

#;4> (%which (list) (%let (x) (%bag-of x (%computer-literate x) list)))
((list (Odysseus Odysseus Penelope)))
#;5> (%which (list) (%let (x) (%set-of x (%computer-literate x) list)))

Error: unbound variable: %set-of

However, when I looked at the source code for the egg (on the web at there was a %set-of define next to the %bag-of define.

<snip code above>
(define %bag-of (schelog:make-bag-of cons))
(define %set-of (schelog:make-bag-of schelog:set-cons))
<snip code below>

I have not examined the local copy of the egg's source code on my system.

Schelog installed via chicken-install on 7/3/15. Thought to be 3.4

During install of Schelog egg, a probably unrelated warning is generated regarding the (%more) function. (%more) operates as expected, however.

I don't know anything about Schelog, but the definition of %more looks a bit iffy in that it sets schelog:*more-fk* at various points to a procedure, #f or one of the symbols forward or more. In any case, that's not why %set-of isn't working; it is simply omitted from the module declaration in schelog-module.scm. This is probably just an oversight. The attached patch fixes it.

Resolution: fixed

Thanks, Peter. Patch is applied and tagged 3.5

THe use of schelog:*more-fk certainly looks strange, but I never really understood the code - I just ported it.
