Final SRFI 169: Underscores in Numbers Arthur A. Gleckler 27 Jul 2019 03:10 UTC
Scheme Request for Implementation 169,
"Underscores in Numbers,"
by Lassi Kortela,
has gone into "final" status.
The document and an archive of the discussion are
Here's the abstract:
Many people find that large numbers are easier
to read when the digits are broken into small
groups. For example, the number 1582439 might
be easier to read if written as 1 582 439. This
applies to source code as it does to other
writing. We propose an extension of Scheme
syntax to allow the underscore as a digit
separator in numerical constants.
Many thanks to the author and to everyone who
contributed to the discussion of this SRFI.
