In the REPL, you can type

scheme@(guile-user)> (help car)

and get help about a procedure called "car"

BUT if you wrap the 'car' in quotation marks, like this

scheme@(guile-user)> (help "car")

You get documentation about 3 different procedures that have the fragment "car" in their name

Could you find any hint of this experience in the manual ?

I never did

A bit about how we became reliant on praise as children which eventually sabotaged us. I’m not sure I’m 100% with this but I think there is good to be found here.

Thank you @zigg

O è una presa per il culo, una moda letteraria che dura quanto un prurito di culo ?

Un romanzo d'appendice fatto per essere consumato ?

A voi che ve ne pare ?

Mi sono innamorato dell'irresistibile sussiego fronscese dell'autore ?

Does anyone know a freelance documentation writer, ideally familiar with GNOME and the GNOME documentation tooling, who may be available for a short project refreshing the end-user documentation for Endless OS, contributing to the GNOME documentation in the process? Give me a shout if so!
