Argument Conventions

LOC is a symbol, or #f. The symbolic naming of the location detecting the problem. As in the error form.

OBJ is any Scheme object.

ARGNAM is a string or symbol naming the argument list element corresponding to the OBJ. The default is the type-name.

Type Checks

Performs the minimal constraint check and raises an error condition upon failure. The mimimal constraint proviso is important for understanding the behavior of the checking routines. Unless otherwise specified no additional constraints are verified.

So the check-...-interval routines, for example, do not verify the types of the arguments, only the interval constraint.

When the unsafe feature is defined the check procedures are no-ops.

Note that the full-numeric-tower is not supported.

All check-... routines return the checked object; unless a type-error exception is raised, obviously.

Usage

(import type-checks)

Type Checks Basic

Usage
(import type-checks-basic)
check-defined-value
[procedure] (check-defined-value LOC OBJ [ARGNAM]) -> *

Ensures the OBJ is non-void, i.e. not an undefined-value.

check-bound-value
[procedure] (check-bound-value LOC OBJ [ARGNAM]) -> *

Ensures the OBJ is the value of a bound variable.

Only for use in rather unsafe calling environments where some explicit checking is necessary.

check-minimum-argument-count
[procedure] (check-minimum-argument-count LOC ARGC MINARGC) -> *

Does not verify the type of ARGC, and MINARGC.

check-argument-count
[procedure] (check-argument-count LOC ARGC MAXARGC) -> *

Does not verify the type of ARGC, and MAXARGC.

define-check-type
[syntax] (define-check-type TYPNAM [TYPE-PRED])

define-check+error-type
[syntax] (define-check+error-type TYPNAM [TYPE-PRED [TYPMSG]])
