srfi-123

Generic accessor and modifier operators. For more information, see SRFI-123.

Procedures

[procedure] (ref object field [default])
[procedure] (~ object field [default])

Access value in object specified by field. If there is no such value, signal an error.

~ is the same procedure as ref.

If object is a sparse type, meaning its fields can be "empty" or "unassigned" (such as a hashtable) and the requested field is empty, the value of default is returned, if that argument is supplied, or an error is signaled.

Note that this is an SRFI-17 getter-with-setter, so the value specified by field can be set with:

(set! (ref object field) value)

By default, works on srfi-69 hash-tables, lists/pairs, strings, vectors, srfi-99 records, srfi-4 vectors, and box boxes.

[procedure] (ref* object field ...)

Access value specified by one or more fields in nested object.

This is also an SRFI-17 getter-with-setter.

[procedure] (register-getter-with-setter! type getter sparse?)

Registers a new type/getter/setter for use with ref or ref*.
