This package contains the four parts of the r6rs report in both pdf and html format, as well as their published errata. it also includes only the r6rs and r6rs-lib reports in info format. these parts are defined as follows:
r6rs: the report gives a defining description of the programming language scheme. scheme is a statically scoped and properly tail-recursive dialect of the lisp programming language invented by guy lewis steele jr. and gerald jay sussman. it was designed to have an exceptionally clear and simple semantics and few different ways to form expressions. a wide variety of programming paradigms, including functional, imperative, and message passing styles, find convenient expression in scheme.
r6rs-lib: the report gives a defining description of the standard libraries of the programming language scheme.
r6rs-app: this document contains non-normative appendices to the revised6 report on the algorithmic language scheme. these appendices contain advice for users and suggestions for implementors on issues not fit for standardization, in particular on platform-specific issues.
r6rs-rationale: this document describes rationales for some of the design decisions behind the revised^6 report on the algorithmic language scheme. the focus is on changes made since the last revision on the report. moreover, numerous fundamental design decisions of scheme are explained. this report also contains some historical notes.
