18.2 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.

18.2.1 General Rules  
18.2.2 Conservative Garbage Collection  
18.2.3 Immediates vs Non-immediates  
18.2.4 Immediate Datatypes  
18.2.5 Non-immediate Datatypes  
18.2.6 Signalling Type Errors  
18.2.7 Unpacking the SCM Type
