./lang/chicken, Scheme to C compiler, handling R5RS

Branch: CURRENT, Version: 4.11.0, Package name: chicken-4.11.0, Maintainer: asau

CHICKEN is a Scheme-to-C compiler supporting most of the language
features as defined in the Revised^5 Report on Scheme. CHICKEN
generates quite portable C code, and files compiled by it (including
itself) should work without any changes on most platforms.

The whole package is distributed under a BSD license and as such free
to use and modify as long as you adhere to its terms (see the manual).
Linkage to C modules and C-library functions is straightforward, so
it's easy to access C from Scheme. Compiled code can be embedded into
existing C programs without problems. The generated code supports
full tail-recursion, first-class continuations, multiple values and

Update to CHICKEN 4.11.0
From Leonardo Taccari.

This release introduces several large changes, the one with the most
impact being a completely new calling convention for compiled CPS
procedures in C code.  Instead of expecting "regular" C arguments,
the compiled C functions now accept a so-called "argvector" which
holds the arguments.  This should greatly improve the portability of
CHICKEN programs, because it relies less on ill-specified parts of C.
It also removes the assembly code required for manyargs, so that the
limitation of 128 arguments for platforms without an "apply hack" has
finally been removed.
On the tooling front we've also added two new features: a statistical
profiler for analysing performance, and a graphical debugger called
"feathers", which allows you to inspect your Scheme programs over the
network.  These have both been documented in the manual.  The debugger
has its own chapter at https://wiki.call-cc.org/man/4/Debugging and the
profiler's new -:p runtime option is documented at
https://wiki.call-cc.org/man/4/Using%20 … me-options

As usual, many bugs have been fixed with this release, including several
bugs that would cause programs to crash.  All in all, this new release
should be much more robust and reliable.

Update to CHICKEN 4.10.0

This is mostly a bugfix release, containing quite a lot of accumulated
bug fixes but relatively few new features.  Nevertheless, there are a
great many changes in this release since 4.9.0.  It has three security
bugfixes: for CVE-2014-6310, CVE-2014-9651 and CVE-2015-4556.

Another important security-related cleanup/improvement is related to path
expansion: many file procedures in CHICKEN used to automatically and
implicitly convert paths containing tilde ("~") characters to $HOME,
and expand shell variables.  This behaviour was deprecated in 4.9.0,
and has now been removed, in favor of the "pathname-expand" egg.

A few of the build variables have been renamed, so if you have a custom
build script, please review the NEWS file carefully.

Other notable changes:

* The performance of reading and writing SRFI-4 u8vectors has been
   substantially improved.
* Various bugs in the functors implementation have been fixed, making
   them better usable.
* chicken.h can once more be correctly compiled with a C++ compiler.
* The -r5rs-syntax flag has been fixed to enforce r5rs syntax.
