thank you

But I'm a bit overwhelmed by so much code

a tiny example of reading a short string that a user could type at a prompt
would be more useful to a beginner, I think

I came up with this short example

(use-modules (ice-9 rdelim))

(let ((str (read-line (current-input-port))))
    (display (string-append str "\n")))

it's extremely essential but it demonstrates the usage of the current input
port in association with delimited text reading

This is a very basic use case, intended as an example, a step 0 for further

Guile could use some more examples, in its manual

Thanks !
