This is an egg for CHICKEN 3, the unsupported old release. You're almost certainly looking for the CHICKEN 4 version of this egg, if it exists.
If it does not exist, there may be equivalent functionality provided by another egg; have a look at the egg index. Otherwise, please consider porting this egg to the current version of CHICKEN.
Matchable is a drop-in compatible replacement for Chicken's MATCH macro. All forms are provided under the same name, and all features except the ..k pattern are supported.
In addition, matchable supports non-linear patterns, i.e. patterns where an identifier occurs multiple times, requiring all instances of the identifier to be EQUAL?. For example:
(x _ x)
matches all lists of three elements whose first and third elements are the same.
For full documentation, see Pattern matching. However, the match-error-control and match-error-procedure procedures have no impact. A failure to match always signals an error.
