[racket] error while loading simply.scm

0. Racket is not Scheme and this an example where the difference shows up. 

1. Use the legacy language Pretty Big: 

Welcome to DrRacket, version [3m].
Language: Pretty Big.
> (load "functions.scm")

2. Even then, some functions are simply not defined in "Scheme". 

Some of the functions have slightly different names in Racket. 
Some need definitions from what I can tell. All straightforwar
but I am out of time. 

I have commented them out in the global definition *the-functions* 
and got a loadable file. Attached

3. Since the file seems to come w/o a test suite, I am not sure
whether it works.
