Loads adoc file that has been previously prepared with thechicken-man program. If no filename is given, it defaults tochicken.man. The optional argument for man:load, a file, contains a list of items representing the documentation of an object. Each item (also a list) has the following format:("OBJECT NAME" "PROTOTYPE" "DESCRIPTION")
(("foo" "(foo FOO-ARG)" "My `foo' procedure.") ("bar" "(bar)" "This is the `bar' procedure."))
Displays the description for the string or symbolSYMBOL.

You can use the chicken-man program to convert a .texi file into a document that can be searched with man:help:
$ chicken.man foo.texi $ csi -quiet #;1> (man:load "foo.doc") #;2> (man:help ...)
Put this code into your .emacs file to view the manual section for the current word (there must be a*scheme* buffer running somewhere):
(defun chicken-help () (interactive) (let ((func (current-word))) (if func (process-send-string "*scheme*" (concat "(man:help \"" func "\")\n"))))) ;; Binds F1 to chicken-help in the scheme-mode ;; (add-hook 'scheme-mode-hook (lambda () (local-set-key [f1] 'chicken-help)))
