New scheme user here.
Suppose I'm writing a spreadsheet. The user inputs a formula for a cell.
The plan is to use guile's peg parser to convert the formula into a
lambda expression, which I then compile in order to speed-up
subsequent processing.
So, suppose I convert the user's formula to a list, which turns out to
be, for example: '(lambda (x) (+ x 13)) and compile it and save it in
a formula table:
(hash-set! my-cell-formulae some-cell-ref (compile '(lambda (x) (+ x
13))))
So I can I expect a speed-up by having done the compile, as opposed to
an eval?
I assume the answer is "yes", but I wanted to check
