I am sorry, I think I am still misunderstanding it. When I try:
(regexp-try-match #rx"^[1-9]+[0-9]*$" (current-input-port)) It also results immediately in: #f > "^" doesn't match the beginning of the input Is there something else I should use to start matching from the beginning of whatever I input? The docs for regexp-try-match say: > This procedure is especially useful with a pattern that begins with a start-of-string ^or with a non-#f end-pos, since each limits the amount of peeking into the port. To me it sounds like: 'Use this when you want to do "^somethingsomething".' If I leave away the ^ part: (regexp-try-match #rx"[1-9]+[0-9]*$" (current-input-port)) It again never stops wanting more input on REPL.
