#1342 closed defect (fixed)

define-record-type doesn't define type name

Component: core libraries Version: 4.11.0
Keywords: Cc:
Estimated difficulty: easy


I'm unable to compile (chibi iset) in Chicken because it uses the following definition:

(define-record-type Integer-Set
  (%make-iset start end bits left right)
  (start iset-start iset-start-set!)
  (end   iset-end   iset-end-set!)
  (bits  iset-bits  iset-bits-set!)
  (left  iset-left  iset-left-set!)
  (right iset-right iset-right-set!))

and exports Integer-Set, but Integer-Set is not bound in Chicken. This is required to be defined in both SRFI 9 and R7RS (scheme base) - if for some reason this isn't desired in the core Chicken language, a wrapper should be provided for these two libraries. It can be bound to anything at all, even syntax. In SRFI 99 procedural introspection is provided on this binding.

I think we need to do this for 5.0 when also tackling the "global record namespace" problem.
