1.2 How Guile does it

Here we present the specifics of how Guile represents its data. We don't go into complete detail; an exhaustive description of Guile's system would be boring, and we do not wish to encourage people to write code which depends on its details anyway. We do, however, present everything one need know to use Guile's data.

1.2.1 General Rules  
1.2.2 Conservative Garbage Collection  
1.2.3 Immediates vs Non-immediates  
1.2.4 Immediate Datatypes  
1.2.5 Non-immediate Datatypes  
1.2.6 Signalling Type Errors  
1.2.7 Unpacking the SCM Type
