A lot of functions in Racket return (void) instead of a useful value. One example is the gzip function from file/gzip; it would be useful if this returned the filepath to which the file was compressed, but instead it simply returns (void).
I have a lot of respect for Racket and its designers, so I'm guessing this wasn't a random choice. What is the reason for this philosophy? -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Racket Users" group.
