7.1 wb-table

(require 'wb-table) wb-table is a straightforward embedding of SLIB base-table (see Base Table) in WB with SCM. It supports scheme expressions for keys and values whose text representations are less than 255 characters in length. The primitive types supported are:

boolean #t or #f.
string 0 - 255 byte string.
symbol 0 - 255 byte symbol.
atom internal legacy alias for symbol (or #f).
ordinal String representation (< 256.B) of numbers. Nonnegative integers sort correctly.
expression Scheme expression (representation must be < 256.B).
