What a great contribution, Jos, thanks a lot!

I am taking a Programming Languages class at the University of São
Paulo and just last week we read chapter 22 "Shrinking the Language"
of Shriram Krishnamurthi's Programming Languages: Application and
Interpretation (PLAI) [1], in which he "shrinks" Scheme to the
essentials of the Lambda Calculus.


I generated a PDF version of the text. The links to your site and and
the internal links are working (only the links to the local files do
not work). I used OpenOffice to do the conversion.

I took the liberty of putting the .doc, .pdf and .odt, and all your
source code in a public repository on GitHub [2].

Full credit is given to you in the repository description and in a
README.txt file. I also put links to your site [3] in the repository
home page and in the README.txt.

Thank your very much for that contribution, Jos!



PS. I also agree that turning the text in to a scribble like Emre is
doing is the best way to publish your work for use by the DrScheme
