It seems most non-programmers are scared of complex control structures,
hence their affinity for "scripts", which tend to have a linear command-
oriented nature. Argument substitution a la $1, $2, etc is easy enough
to understand, but going beyond that falls outside the template-filling
paradigm that many regard (incorrectly) as the essense of programming.
Anyway, ObSubject: Olin Shivers has a net.tar.gz, with the following
An smtp client library.
Forge mail from the comfort of your own Scheme process.
rfc822 header library
Read email-style headers. Useful in several contexts (smtp, http, etc.)
Simple structured HTML output library
Balanced delimiters, etc. htmlout.scm.
HTTP server library
This is a complete implementation of an HTTP 1.0 server.
The server is very extensible, via a mechanism called "path handlers."
The library includes other standalone libraries that may be of use:
+ URI and URL parsers and unparsers.
+ A library to help writing CGI scripts in Scheme.
+ Server extensions for interfacing to CGI scripts.
+ Server extensions for uploading Scheme code.
Brian Carlstrom's network code: ftp, telnet, finger,
his html parser, etc.
And, as was pointed out, the contrib dir on red-bean has guile-www stuff
