PLaneT

PLaneT is a network package distribution system for PltScheme.

As of PltScheme version 208 and later, PLaneT permits a program to require code packages that are automatically downloaded from the PLaneT repository and cached for later use. For example to use a soundex procedure:

> (require (planet "soundex.ss" ("neil" "soundex.plt" 1 0)))
> (soundex "Smith")
"S530"

In this example, PLaneT version (1 0) (or a later compatible version (1 x) where x is greater than 0) of package ("neil" "soundex.plt") was automatically either retrieved from local disk cache or downloaded from the repository and cached. Then the module in soundex.ss of the package's collection was loaded.

See http://planet.plt-scheme.org/ for a directory of the growing number of available PLaneT packages.
