Node:Loading SRFI-13, Next:SRFI-13 Predicates, Up:SRFI-13
When Guile is properly installed, SRFI-13 support can be loaded into a
running Guile by using the
(srfi srfi-13) module.
$ guile guile> (use-modules (srfi srfi-13)) guile>
When this step causes any errors, Guile is not properly installed.
One possible reason is that Guile cannot find either the Scheme module
srfi-13.scm, or it cannot find the shared object file
libguile-srfi-srfi-13-14.so. Make sure that the former is in the
Guile load path and that the latter is either installed in some default
/usr/local/lib or that the directory it was
installed to is in your
LTDL_LIBRARY_PATH. The same applies to
Now you can test whether the SRFI-13 procedures are working by calling
guile> (string-concatenate '("Hello" " " "World!")) "Hello World!"
