I would like to ask how I can programmatically determine the system location of eggs?
I ask because if I installed an egg to a user directory and I want to use the system's eggs as well as the user egg, it seems I need to have the system's and the user egg repository in the CHICKEN_REPOSITORY_PATH environment variable. As the system's location may differ among operating systems, I would like to determine this path from the command line and add it by script.

Also, is it possible that the "How can I install CHICKEN eggs to a non-default location?" section of the "Frequently Asked Question":

is out of date? "chicken-install -init" and "(repository-path ...)" seem not be available in CHICKEN Scheme 5.2, unless I am using it incorrectly.

Lastly, I would like to ask if CHICKEN Scheme has a function/symbol index, as for example Chez Scheme has:

and I just overlooked it?

Thank You
