#102 closed defect (fixed)

module syntax name

Reported by: alexshinn Owned by: cowan
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: WG1 - Core Keywords:


A bikeshed color issue, we need to choose the
actual names for the module syntax for the winner
of #2.

import, export and include are fairly universal
and no alternate is suggested unless someone wants
to write in a proposal.

The enclosing syntax can be called either
library as in R6RS, module or some other proposal.

Denis Washington brought up the issue of the name "module" vs. the name "library" in a message on the <scheme-reports> list on 19 Jun 2011. We had already voted on this issue, and no one brought up a new line of reasoning in the subsequent discussion, but I'm reopening this ticket so that we remember to look at it once again.
