Macroless ML-style pattern matching.
Mayer Goldberg. Packaged as a Chicken extension by Category 5.
In the words of the author:
This pattern matcher implements ML-style pattern matching in Scheme relatively painlessly. I use it whenever I need to name various sub-expressions of some sexpr, and refer to them by those names. The package is built on the two procedures 'with' and 'match'. The 'with' procedure has been one of my favourite Scheme idioms for quite a while, and you can certainly use it apart [from] any pattern matching. The 'match' procedure is a recent addition to the bag-o'-tricks.
The only change made to the author's original code is the renaming of the match procedure to pmatch to avoid conflict with Chicken's built-in match.
The following procedures are provided:[procedure] pmatch
