 SCM4e4 release

This message announces the availability of Scheme release scm4e4.

New in scm4e4 are:

   In addition to fixing assorted bugs, I have improved the
   documentation of BUILD options and features.  Scm4e4's "build.scm"
   requires new functions from the most recent SLIB.

   Patrick LECOANET has ported Gnu Emacs' unexec to SCM.  You can load
   Scheme code for a program, save that executable, then startup the
   saved program much more quickly.  Startup time is improved by more
   than a factor of 3 under Linux:

      bash$ time -p scm -e"()"
      real 0.43
      user 0.34
      sys 0.08

      bash$ time -p dumped-scm -e"()"
      real 0.16
      user 0.04
      sys 0.09

   Startup time for large saved Scheme programs is similarly reduced
   compared to the time to load these programs.  Using DLD under
   Linux, dynamically linked (object) files can be linked both before
   and after dumping.

   Radey Shouman has made many improvents in the area of
   uniform-vectors and arrays.  Feature 'array-for-each is now
   dynamically linkable.

Scm conforms to Revised^4 Report on the Algorithmic Language Scheme
and the IEEE P1178 specification.  Scm is written in C and runs under
Amiga, Atari-ST, MacOS, MS-DOS, OS/2, NOS/VE, Unicos, VMS, Unix and
similar systems.  ASCII and EBCDIC are supported.

Documentation is included explaining the many Scheme Language
extensions in scm, the internal representations, and how to extend or
include SCM in other programs.  Documentation is online at:

SCM can be obtained via FTP (detailed instructions follow) from:

SLIB is a portable Scheme library which SCM uses:

JACAL is a symbolic math system written in Scheme:

HOBBIT is a compiler for SCM code:

SCMCONFIG contains additional files for the SCM distribution to build
SCM on Unix machines using GNU autoconf.

SLIB-PSD is a portable de{*filter*} for Scheme (requires emacs editor):

SLIB-SCHELOG is an embedding of Prolog in Scheme:

SMG-SCM is an SMG interface package which works with SCM on VMS.
A VMS version of Unzip is available by anonymous FTP from[ANONYMOUS.MACRO32]UNZIP.EXE.

TURTLSCM is a turtle graphics package which works with SCM on MS-DOS
or X11 machines:

XSCM is a X windows interface package which works with SCM:

MacSCM is a Macintosh applications building package which works with
SCM (similar to XSCM).

WB is a disk based, sorted associative array (B-tree) library for SCM.
Using WB, large databases can be created and managed from SCM.

DLD is a C library package allowing SCM to dynamically load object
files on Linux, VAX (Ultrix), Sun 3 (SunOS 3.4 and 4.0), SPARCstation
(SunOS 4.0), Sequent Symmetry (Dynix), and Atari ST.

  `scm4e4.tar.gz' is a gzipped tar file of the C code distribution.
  `slib2a5.tar.gz' is a gzipped tar file of a Scheme Library.

Files in these directories with the ".gz" suffix are compressed with
patent-free gzip (no relation to zip).  The program to uncompress them
is available from

Remember to use binary mode when transferring the files.
Be sure to get and read the GNU General Public License (COPYING).
It is included in scm4e4.tar.gz.

To receive an IBM PC floppy disk set with the source files,
documentation, and MS-DOS and i386 MS-DOS executables send $99.00 to:
   Aubrey Jaffer, 84 Pleasant St. Wakefield MA 01880-1846, USA.

If you like scm you can support the developement and maintainence of
it by buying a disk from me or by sending money to the above address.
