6.1.5 Keywords

Keywords constitute an extension to Scheme required by Dsssl [Dsssl96]. Keywords syntax is either <ident>: or :<ident>.

Keywords are autoquote and case sensitive. So

(eq? toto: TOTO:) ⇒ #f

The colon character (:) does not belong to they keyword. Hence

(eq? toto: :toto) ⇒ #t
bigloo procedure: keyword? obj
bigloo procedure: keyword->string keyword
bigloo procedure: string->keyword string
bigloo procedure: keyword->symbol keyword
bigloo procedure: symbol->keyword symbol
