A DrScheme Quickie…
DrScheme shipped with pre-release version 301.5 is having some troubles at least under Linux, and sometimes suddenly shuts down? Why?
Well the most curious will:
$ gdb plt-last/bin/drscheme
GNU gdb 6.4

This GDB was configured as "i686-pc-linux-gnu"..."/usr/local/plt/plt-301.5/bin/drscheme": not in executable format: File format not recognized
Odd reply, right?
OK, don’t worry… You can still debug it:
$ gdb plt-last/bin/mred
(gdb) run -synchronous -mvqM drscheme
Now, that will work! In fact, drscheme is a script to call mred which the correct flags. Yeah, ‘cat drscheme’ and you’ll see what I’m talking about! :)
About the error? Oh well, I really don’t know yet, I’m hoping it will break soon so I can debug it!
