Description Erik Greenwald 2002-07-22 22:50:10 UTC
( 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...

From-To: open->closed

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.
