; (fluid-let ((variable expression) ...) expression ...)  ==>  object
; Bind variables dynamically, i.e. assign a dynamic (rather than
; a lexical/static) value to each given variable. The variables
; must be defined outside of FLUID-LET. The difference between
; LET and FLUID-LET is as follows:
; (let ((a 0))                   (let ((a 0))
;   (let ((f (lambda () a)))       (let ((f (lambda () a)))
;     (let ((a 1))                   (fluid-let ((a 1))
;       (f))))         ==> 0           (f))))         ==> 1
; Example:   (let ((a 0))
;              (let ((f (lambda () a)))
;                (fluid-let ((a 1))
;                  (f))))                ==>  1

; In case your Scheme does not support low-level macros,
; try "fluid-let-sr.scm", which uses SYNTAX-RULES.
