39.11.1 Loading SRFI-13

When Guile is properly installed, SRFI-13 support can be loaded into a running Guile by using the (srfi srfi-13) module.

$ guile
guile> (use-modules (srfi srfi-13))

When this step causes any errors, Guile is not properly installed.

One possible reason is that Guile cannot find either the Scheme module file `srfi-13.scm', or it cannot find the shared object file `libguile-srfi-srfi-13-14.so'. Make sure that the former is in the Guile load path and that the latter is either installed in some default location like `/usr/local/lib' or that the directory it was installed to is in your LTDL_LIBRARY_PATH. The same applies to `srfi-14.scm'.

Now you can test whether the SRFI-13 procedures are working by calling the string-concatenate procedure.

guile> (string-concatenate '("Hello" " " "World!"))
"Hello World!"
