guile - a Scheme interpreter
guile [-q] [-ds] [--help] [--version] [--emacs] [--debug]
[-l FILE] [-e FUNCTION] 
[-c EXPR] [-s SCRIPT] [--]
GNU Guile is an interpreter for the Scheme programming language. It
implements R5RS, providing additional features
necessary for real-world use. It is extremely simple to embed guile
into a C program, calling C from Scheme and Scheme from C. Guile's
design makes it very suitable for use as an "extension" or "glue"
language, but it also works well as a stand-alone scheme development
executable itself provides a stand-alone interpreter for scheme
programs, for either interactive use or executing scripts.
This manpage provides only brief instruction in invoking
from the command line. Please consult the guile info documentation
at a command prompt) for more information. There is also a tutorial
Load scheme source code from file.
After reading script, apply FUNCTION to command-line arguments
do -s SCRIPT at this point (note that this argument must be used in
conjuction with -s)
Describe command line options and exit
Start guile with debugging evaluator and backtraces enabled
(useful for debugging guile scripts)
Display guile version and exit.
Enable emacs protocol for use from within emacs (experimental)
Stop argument processing, start guile in interactive mode.
Stop argument processing, evaluate EXPR as a scheme expression.
Load Scheme source from SCRIPT-FILE and execute as a script.
is set, its value is used to agument the path to search for scheme
files when loading. It should be a colon separated list of
directories which will be prepended to the default %load-path.
is a guile script that is executed before any other processing occurs.
For example, the following .guile activates guile's readline
(use-modules (ice-9 readline))
