Teach Yourself Scheme in Fixnum Days [Go to first , previous , next page; contents ; index ] Appendix B DOS batch files in Scheme DOS shell scripts are known as batch files . A conventional DOS batch file that outputs ``Hello, World!'' has the following contents: echo Hello, World! It uses the DOS command echo . The batch file is named hello.bat , which identifies it to the operating system as an executable. It may then be placed in one of the directories on the PATH environment variable. Thereafter, anytime one types hello.bat or simply hello at the DOS prompt, one promptly gets the insufferable greeting. A Scheme version of the hello batch file will perform the same output using Scheme, but we need something in the file to inform DOS that it needs to construe the commands in the file as Scheme, and not as its default batch language. The Scheme batch file, also called hello.bat , looks like: ;@echo off ;goto :start #| :start echo. > c:\_temp.scm echo (load (find-executable-path "hello.bat" >> c:\_temp.scm echo "hello.bat")) >> c:\_temp.scm mzscheme -r c:\_temp.scm %1 %2 %3 %4 %5 %6 %7 %8 %9

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
