I just started learning Scheme and am also trying to implement it, so I'm
just playing around with various features. I've been doing this for a couple
weeks with SICP, haven't got to (apply). From what I gather, though, isn't
(apply) just a way to call a function with arguments that are stored in a
list? It's not a syntax for variable assignment, so wouldn't do what my (!)
and (square!) macros do. Is this correct? Or have I misunderstood what
you're suggesting (this is quite likely)?
