Gnus/5.09 (Gnus v5.9.0) Emacs/21.3
Hi, I am fairly new to guile. So far I am just exploring it as just
another Lisp/Scheme, and writing toy programs in Scheme.
In that connection, I have two questions related to the module system.
1/ How can I customize a module during loading? In Emacs Lisp,
I can either:
a) set a global variable, for instance
(setq foo-module:bar 'baz)
prior to loading a library "foo-module". If that library itself does
it picks up the value that was previously set. But in Scheme, set! only
works on variables that have already been define'd, and a define creates
a new variable totally unrelated to the existing value.
b) use eval-after-load; is there any equivalent in guile?
2/ The documentation for eval says the second argument can be a module.
But how can I get an actual module object? I tried
(eval foo '(ice-9 rw))
but I get
Wrong type argument in position 2 (expecting MODULEP): (ice-9 rw)
Neither the section on using modules or the section on defining them seems
to list any API for getting a module "thing".
Nothing can be explained to a stone.
Or to a stoned person, either.
