Documentation

Core documentation: PDF, OpenOffice and Microsoft Word

Bundled libraries documentation: PDF, OpenOffice and Microsoft Word

(The tutorial for the alpha release can still be found on http://mwaza.dyndns.org/apps/files/bh-tutorial.html .)

Bundled libraries

BH is bundled with a set of general purpose libraries, including:

  • SRFI 1 (list processing), 13 (string), 14 (character sets), 16 (case-lambda support), 19 (time data types and procedures), 95 (sorting) and MORE (check the repository)
  • pregexp, hash digestion, base64 handling, UUID generator
  • HTTP client, server, URI and session variable handling
  • XML<->SXML routines
  • FIFO queue, mailbox, weight balanced tree, erlang-style list matcher
  • String, u8vector, list, exception handling helper libraries
  • let-optionals support

BH's core is completely independent of the bundled libraries, and can be separated from them without any modifications.

See the documentation for more information.

Additional libraries
