Hi Robby - <br><br>While I agree that versioned spec is the right thing to do, I do find version-less spec less frustrating to use when trying to find a version that works on 360 (Yes still a newbie that relies on officially blessed version ;P) - some of the libs just iterates too fast and it's never clear which lib version works with which PLT version from the docs, and it became a guess game. This issue of course can be solved with many different ways, but for now version-less spec works.
<br><br>My 2 cents ;) Thanks,<br>yinso <br><br><br><div><span class="gmail_quote">On 5/11/07, <b class="gmail_sendername">Robby Findler</b> <<a href="mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org">email@example.com</a>> wrote:</span>

<br>><br>> Hmmm... Ok, got it. It's doable with the existing infrastructure in<br>> PLaneT. It'd be very direct to create a PLaneT package that aliases the<br>> common SRFI modules.<br>><br>> This I have now done, since it seems like doing this from the official
<br>> srfi-collection is the wrong thing to do. Chongkai, you don't make the<br>> change to the srfi collection then. I've submitted a PLaneT package that<br>> does absolutely nothing but provide the SRFI names:
<br>><br>> <a href="http://planet.plt-scheme.org/display.ss?package=srfi-alias.plt&owner=dyoo">http://planet.plt-scheme.org/display.ss?package=srfi-alias.plt&owner=dyoo</a><br>><br>> As a concrete example:
<br>><br>> (require (planet "list.ss" ("dyoo" "srfi-alias.plt")))<br>><br>> or<br>><br>> (require (planet "string.ss" ("dyoo" "srfi-alias.plt
")))<br>><br>> should now work.<br>><br>><br>> Since it's PLaneT, this isn't officially sanctioned, so that should<br>> resolve the objections about doing this on the official srfi collection.
<br>> And it still preserves what I wanted before: being able to get at the<br>> common srfi's without having to remember their numbers. So it works out.<br>><br>> (And if an SRFI does pop up with a name that conflicts with existing
<br>> names, I could now choose by dictatorial fiat how to resolve the<br>> conflict... *grin*)<br>><br>><br>> Hope this helps!<br>> _________________________________________________<br>> For list-related administrative tasks:
