Excuse me?!?!  I'm not sure how one could ask for much more:



	     PLT MzScheme: Language Manual
	     The online version of the MzScheme manual.

	Inside PLT MzScheme
	Describes how to extend or embed MzScheme in other applications.
	 1  Overview
		1.1  Writing MzScheme Extensions
		1.2  Embedding MzScheme into a Program
		1.3  MzScheme and Threads
	 2  Values and Types
		2.1  Standard Types
		2.2  Global Constants
		2.3  Library Functions
	 6  Evaluation
		6.1  Top-level Evaluation Functions
		6.2  Tail Evaluation
		6.3  Multiple Values
		6.4  Library Functions
	 7  Exceptions and Escape Continuations
		7.1  Temporarily Catching Error Escapes
		7.2  Library Functions
	 8  Threads
		8.1  Integration with Threads
		8.2  Allowing Thread Switches
		8.3  Blocking the Current Thread
		8.4  Threads in Embedded MzScheme with Event Loops
		8.4.1 Callbacks for Blocked Threads
		8.5  Sleeping by Embedded MzScheme
		8.6  Library Functions
	 ...lots & lots more...

	All PLT Documentation Complete documentation in a variety
	of formats.

Plus, of course, source code and precompiled binaries for a
wide variety of platforms (and the source compiles easily on
most other platforms they don't prebuild):


Did I mention I'm a happy user?  ;-}  ;-}

Did I mention that I've hooked all kinds of weird little C hacks
into MzScheme, and never had a problem with the documentation?
