       guile-tools - displays guile module information

       /usr/bin/guile-tools [OPTION] PROGRAM [ARGS ...]

       knows  where  a particular module is installed and calls it passing its
       args to the program. The result is that you need not augment your PATH.

       Usage is straightforward:

             guile-tools --help
             guile-tools --version
             guile-tools [OPTION] PROGRAM [ARGS ...]

       When Guile is installed, in addition to the `(ice-9  FOO)'  modules,  a
       set of "executable modules" `(scripts BAR)' is also installed.  Each is
       a regular Scheme module that has some additional packaging so  that  it
       can  be called as a program in its own right, from the shell.  For this
       reason, we sometimes use the term "script" in this context to mean  the
       same thing.

       If  PROGRAM is "list" or omitted, display contents of scripts dir, oth-
       erwise PROGRAM is run with ARGS. Options (only one of which may be used
       at a time):

        --scriptsdir DIR - Look in DIR for scripts
        --guileversion VERS - Look in $pkgdatadir/VERS/scripts for scripts
        --source - Display PROGRAM source (ignore ARGS) to stdout

       The  modules  are self-documenting.  For example, to see the documenta-
       tion for `lint', use one (or both) of the shell commands:

               guile-tools display-commentary '(scripts lint)'
               guile-tools --source lint
