Documentation is available from:

Guile-Reader is a reader creation framework for Guile.  It can be
thought of as an alternative to Guile's built-in reader.  The purpose of
Guile-Reader is to allow for the creation of readers for different
variants of the Scheme/Lisp syntax.  Its design allows the re-use and
composition of various parts of a lexer called “token readers”.  It
comes with a library of re-usable token readers that can be used to
build a Scheme reader with various extensions.  For instance, syntax
extensions for DSSSL keywords, SRFI-30 block comments, SRFI-62 S-exp
comments, square-bracket S-exps, and brace S-exps are provided and
readily usable through the ‘make-alternate-guile-reader’ procedure.

Additionally, Guile-Reader aims to improve on Guile's reader sub-system
by allowing for the coexistence of several, potentially incompatible,
readers within a single Guile program.  In particular, it provides a
“confinement” mechanism that confines changes made via ‘read-set!’ and
‘read-hash-extend’ to the calling module.

New in Guile-Reader 0.6.3

  * Allow compilation with Guile 3.0.

  * Fix 'configure' misdetection of libguile features.
