GOOPS is the object-oriented extension to Guile. It is very close in spirit to CLOS (the Common Lisp Object System) but is adapted for the Scheme language. The GOOPS extension gives the user a full object oriented system with multiple inheritance and generic functions with multi-method dispatch. Furthermore, the implementation relies on a true meta object protocol, in the spirit of the one defined for CLOS. This package has been folded into guile; please see that entry ( for the latest information.
