Node:Runtime Options, Previous:Feature Tracking, Up:Options and Config
Guile's runtime behaviour can be modified by setting options. For example, is the language that Guile accepts case sensitive, or should the debugger automatically show a backtrace on error?
Guile has two levels of interface for managing options: a low-level control interface, and a user-level interface which allows the enabling or disabling of options.
Moreover, the options are classified in groups according to whether they configure reading, printing, debugging or evaluating.
