Scm2cs is a Scheme to C# translator for a subset of Scheme. Using Scheme files as source, scm2cs produces texinfo documentation and formatted C# code preserving comments; and type, function, and variable names as much as possible. The output from scm2cs is human-readable and can form the base for further development in C#; abandoning the original Scheme source.
The Scheme subset supported by scm2cs is listed at
Scheme integers and real numbers, booleans, chars, and strings are
translated to the equivalent C# types. SLIB byte vectors map to the
byte in C# code. Vectors of user defined (C#) types
The user incorporates custom C# data types by coding their definitions and accessors in a C# source file. For the purposes of running in Scheme, put analogous definitions in a file which is not translated by scm2cs.
Characters in variable names are translated as follows:
Scm2cs does not include support for a Scheme runtime. Generated C# programs should not assume general Scheme values unless linked with a library providing these features.
Scheme identifier names are used to determine the C# types of the corresponding variables and methods.
Defmacros transforming Scheme code to Scheme code may be defined in
Scheme source files. If there are defmacros used in more than one
Scheme source file, they can be removed to a separate file, and that
file imported by a call to
defmacro:load in each file (before
a defmacro is invoked).
defmacros from filename.
Is an alist associating defmacro names with their transformers. It
fluid-let during each file translatation, so that scm2cs
macro definitions do not take effect in the Scheme top level.
(glob type). glob is a match string; type an expression. Globs are matched to variable names with trailing digits removed. Declarations made later override those made earlier.
Declarations can be made by a call to
no declarations have been made before
schlep is called,
schlep will read a list of declarations from a file named
`scm2cs.typ' if it exists in the same directory as the Scheme
file being translated.
If the type is a symbol or string, variables which match the glob string will be declared as types of that name. If the type is a list, then it will be interpreted as follows.
Types can be nested. Procedure names ending with `!' are typed
void. Procedure names ending with `?' are
translated to names with a trailing `_P'.
The Scheme files in the table at
have examples of the use of
pragma.cshas no effect, but the strings are written to filename.cs during translation.
Define number-lines? to #t for C# code to be prefixed with commmented line numbers. The default value is #f.
The following procedures are called to translate a file. They should not be called from the file being translated.
If filename.txi is empty after translation, then it is deleted.
