If there is no initialization file for your Scheme implementation, you will have to create one. Your Scheme implementation must be largely compliant with
IEEE Std 1178-1990, Revised^4 Report on the Algorithmic Language Scheme, or Revised^5 Report on the Algorithmic Language Scheme
in order to support SLIB. 1
http://cvs.savannah.gnu.org/viewcvs/*checkout*/scm/scm/r4rstest.scm is a file which checks compliance with much of R4RS.
Template.scm is an example configuration file. The comments
inside will direct you on how to customize it to reflect your system.
Give your new initialization file the implementation's name with
.init appended. For instance, if you were porting
foo-scheme then the initialization file might be called
Your customized version should then be loaded as part of your scheme
implementation's initialization. It will load require.scm from
the library; this will allow the use of
require along with the vicinity
functions (these functions are documented in the sections
Feature and Require). The rest of the library will then
be accessible in a system independent fashion.
Please mail new working configuration files to
so that they can be included in the SLIB distribution.
 If you are porting a
Revised^3 Report on the Algorithmic Language Scheme
implementation, then you will need to finish writing sc4sc3.scm
load it from your initialization file.
