Node:Immediate Datatypes, Next:Non-immediate Datatypes, Previous:Immediates vs Non-immediates, Up:How Guile does it
The following datatypes are immediate values; that is, they fit entirely
SCM value. The
macros will distinguish these from non-immediates; see Immediates vs Non-immediates for an explanation of the distinction.
Note that the type predicates for immediate values work correctly on any
SCM value; you do not need to call
SCM_IMP first, to
establish that a value is immediate.
