Hi folks,

I am trying to use the Ikarus R6RS SRFI libraries with PLT- on Linux.

The libraries are located here:


On Linux when I set PLTCOLLECTS to:


So that it finds the R6RS srfi collects dir first, I get the error:

grettke at stargate:~$ default-load-handler: cannot open input file:
"/home/grettke/collects/srfi/1.ss" (No such file or directory;

When I link 1.ss to 1.sls I get:

grettke at stargate:~/collects/srfi$ ln -s 1.sls 1.ss
grettke at stargate:~/collects/srfi$ drscheme&
[1] 11253
grettke at stargate:~/collects/srfi$ standard-module-name-resolver: cycle
in loading at #<path:/home/grettke/collects/srfi/1.ss>:

On Windows, bzr can't check out the symlinks for the colon-prefixed
names. Anyone know how to create colon-prefix names (%3aXX.NN) in

Best wishes,
