Hello everybody, I had a look through the egg index and found that almost 10% of our eggs (38 out of just under 380) were not documented!
It turned out that quite a few of those (12 eggs) were documented on the wiki in Chicken 3 but the wiki page was simply not copied to Chicken 4, so I did that for those eggs. I also took the liberty of converting documentation of the last few eggdoc holdouts (openssl, rpc, pandora, sqlite3, pty, sassy) to the wiki, as the egg index simply doesn't pick up on eggdoc files anymore and the wiki is the central place for all Chicken documentation. There are only a few eggs left now which are undocumented. I'll list them here, sorted by author to make it easy for egg authors to find their eggs that still need documenting. Alex Shinn: fast-loop special-case Moritz Heidkamp: char-set-literals vandusen couchdb scss Ivan Raikov: endian-port (also Shawn Rutledge?) multidoc (also Peter Bex, i.e. myself) interval-digraph random-test signal-diagram input-classes neuromorpho miniML Jim Ursetto: osxattr Tony Sidaway: mw mw-core Joerg Wittenberg: high-load-scheduler (also Felix?) I'm sure for most eggs it simply slipped the author's mind, and for ported eggs the one who ported probably was either unaware that the docs needed to be copied or was too busy with getting the code ported that he forgot about the docs. So as an aid for egg authors, Mario told me he'll add a documentation check to Salmonella, so we'll be able to see with a quick glance at http://tests.call-cc.org which eggs have missing documentation (surely this can be seen as a bug!).
