A SWANK server for Chicken Scheme. See: http://www.doof.me.uk/2010/12/12/using-slime-with-chicken-scheme/ http://www.doof.me.uk/2011/01/01/update-to-chicken-swank-server/ http://www.doof.me.uk/2011/01/02/chicken-slime-describe-and-apropos/ for more details. Quickstart: 1) chicken-install fmt symbol-utils apropos chicken-doc 2) Run chicken-install in the directory where you cloned the repository: this will install the `slime' extension. 3) Add the Chicken extensions directory to your Emacs load-path. Typically this will be /usr/local/lib/chicken/5/ 4) Add the following to your .emacs (slime-setup '(slime-fancy slime-banner)) ; If you don't use SLIME already ; Refer to the SLIME manual for setup instructions (autoload 'chicken-slime "chicken-slime" "SWANK backend for Chicken" t) ;; If your csi executable is in a non-standard location (setq slime-csi-path "/path/to/csi") (add-hook 'scheme-mode-hook (lambda () (slime-mode t))) 5) Start a SLIME REPL with M-x chicken-slime Note for the describe and apropos commands to work you must install a local copy of the Chicken documentation. If you want to hack on the SWANK server set the following variable: (setq swank-chicken-path "/path/to/swank-chicken.scm") This will interpret the code rather than loading the extension. Note there is currently a bug in the interpreted version which causes a SEGV when viewing local variables in a call frame. -- Report all bugs, etc. to nick AT nickg DOT me DOT uk.
