Re: [Chicken-users] Keep `csi` open after reading from pipe

I believe the typical way to do this is to include the file after
you load csi:

  $ cat my-input-file.scm
  (define (doit)
    (display "hello world")
  $ csi
  #;1> (include "my-input-file")
  ; including my-input-file.scm ...
  #;2> (doit)
  hello world

If you don't want to type (include ...) every time you load csi, you
can (load ...) it in your ~/.csirc file.  In the event of a syntax
error in that file, you can use |csi -n| to start csi without loading
your ~/.csirc.  Since this is a common scenario, you may want to
continue in the event of an error in your input file.  The example
below emulates the default Chicken Scheme exception handler, but
continues the interpreter:

  $ cat ~/.csirc
      (lambda ()
        (print-error-message exn)
    (load "my-input-file"))
  $ cat my-input-file.scm
  (define (doit)
    (display "hello world"
  $ csi

  Error: (line 4) unterminated list, starting in line 1

          Call history:
  #;1> (doit)
