A few random I/O proposals
The current Scheme I/O system is a toy.
My functions return #f for failure. Despite dire warnings from
several people on comp.lang.scheme, I have NEVER been burnt by this
(and I make lots of mistakes).
I believe you since I have not been bitten myself on my own code
because I am compulsive about testing return values (in C). However,
I've had to debug and fix enough broken C/Unix software (which uses
this method) written by other people that I do not believe it is an
acceptable solution for any language, and certainly not for Scheme.
