Snowtar C5 patch

chicken-users mailing list
Snowtar seems like a useful tool to have. I've made the appropriate C5 compatibility changes (mostly just an egg file and cond-expands for imports), it'd be nice to have this in the C5 repo. I don't think I can actually push these changes upstream myself, or change the release-info file either, so I'm including a patch with my changes attached to this message. Hopefully someone with access can help me out here?

I may also port over snowdigest. Additionally, if anyone knows of a mirror for scheme now! packages/code, I'd love to explore these and package some up for C5 (I'm awaiting on a response from the person who maintained the website, as far as I can tell). Looking on web archive, there's some pretty fun and interesting sounding stuff in there. Maybe we could create a snow compatibility egg to avoid code duplication across snow eggs.

Are you talking about <http://snow-fort.org/>? It's maintained by Alex
Shinn of Chibi-Scheme fame. He does reply to email, but he is quite busy
so it may take a while.

Again, not sure whether you are talking about <http://snow-fort.org/>.
But if you are, all (or almost all) of that should be R7RS code, and
should hence run in Chicken's R7RS mode. If a separate compatibility egg
is needed, that's a sign of a problem that should be fixed upstream.

Some of the libs there contain Chibi-Scheme FFI stub files which would
have to be ported to Chicken.

In case you are talking about the old Scheme Now! instead of snow-fort,
IIRC most of those packages have been imported into snow-fort and/or
some other, more modern package collection. Might want to diff the old
snow and snow-fort package listings.

Ooh, another handy collection to port to Chicken! Didn't know about this one either. :)

I was talking about this one: https://web.archive.org/web/20190203021849/http://snow.iro.umontreal.ca/?tab=Packages

It did seem fairly old, and some of that functionality actually is in chicken scheme (tar, digest, hostos, sort, etc.), but there are still some packages that stand out and seem fairly practical.

It seems like a lot of it isn't in snow-fort.org, as far as I can tell (pi, tar, digest, rsa, more...). Marc Feeley is who I spoke about emailing earlier - it's only been like a day, I'm not in a rush. Though if you know some other place that code might be, let me know.
