( taken from http://freshmeat.net/projects/Gauche )
Gauche is an R5RS Scheme implementation that aims to be a handy tool
for daily work. Quick startup, a built-in system interface, and native
multilingual support are some of its goals. It has an OO system
similar to STklos and Guile. It supports UTF-8, EUC-JP, and Shift-JIS
multibyte encodings natively.
Tested on -current as well as 4.2-release.
Japanese stuff is disabled, this is english only. My nihongo isn't good enough to try fixing the texinfo files up... I'm thinking if it's important, someone will make japanese/gauche
if this is a dup, I apologize, I think my sendmail is failing some of the time, most like a silly config thing related to running my box behind a nat :) If the shar is broken from this web submit thingy, I dropped it at http://smluc.org/~erik/gauche.shar as well...
Oops, I noticed this PR after committing my own version..
Would you please take over the maintainership of lang/gauche and
databases/gauche-gdbm? FYI, the differences of mine from yours are:
- multibyte support that's new in 0.6.2 is turned on by default,
with the choice of utf-8.
- pthread support is turned off because the author states that
Boehm-GC + pthread do not yet work on FreeBSD.
- info files are built with --no-split as requested by the
porter's handbook, and Japanese info is also installed.
- has PLIST_SUB tricks to make the future maintenance easier.
