Description

An interface to bitcoind's JSON-RPC API.

This library is obsolete, unsupported, and may not even work anymore.

If you feel like adopting it, be my guest.

The source is available here.

Usage

Function names and signatures match those listed in the bitcoind API reference. JSON responses are translated into Scheme datatypes according to medea's conversion rules.

When an error response is received from bitcoind, an exception of type (exn bitcoin) is raised.
