hi anyone know about scheme here?
Posted by kfatima [send private reply] at November 19, 2002, 11:35:51 PM hi all,
i am new here and i have a question about the scheme language, i am getting this 'out of bound variable' error for one of my functions, can someone tell me what possibly can be causing it?
i would post part of my code if needed for more clarification
thanks a lot

I'm no scheme guru, though. Perhaps unknown_lamer can tell you about this error.

ok i am posting the code now. basically it is the hash-division-method, that is supposed to return a function.
;; value of parameter "size" should be a prime number
(lambda (size) ;; range of values: 0..size-1
(lambda (x)(modulo key(w) size))))
(if (null? (cdr w)) (ctv (car w))
(* (ctv (car w)) (key (cdr w))))))
;key takes in the word as a list and return the ctv of it
so (key '(a b c)) -> returns 12 and so on.
so the division methods takes in the number generated by the key function and takes modulus of that and size
but i am getting unbound variables error in the division function . any kind of help would be appreciated.

(define gen-hash-division-method (lambda (size) ;; range of values: 0..size-1 (lambda (x)(modulo (key '(w)) size))))
You wrote "key(w)" instead of "(key '(w))". Remember to put parens around procedure calls.
