[issue] "I've reformatted my Windows and tried your installations instructions above. When I first followed this instructions it worked out just fin [maybe because of the prior mzscheme installations I've made my own]. This time around I'm following your instructions without first installing my first instruction method, and here's the error:

  tl: undefined;
    cannot reference undefined identifier
      context...:
        C:\Program Files\Racket\collects\racket\private\misc.rkt:87:7
    tl: undefien
NOTES:

> I've installed racket-6.4-i386-win32 and Git-2.7.4-32-bit

> Running Windows 7 EE 32bit

Oops, sorry, this is due to the change I made to boot.scm recently: http://arclanguage.org/item?id=19478

In the case of these instructions, lnstead of (load "boot.scm"), please use (require "boot.scm") now.

Hmm, not sure what's going on. Is the word 'undefien' in your comment exactly as it appears on the error message?

I assume this happens when you type in the third command (tl)?

The error has to do with looking up the variable "Rtl". The "R" probably comes from a bug in Racket's reader where certain things pasted into a Windows terminal window are parsed incorrectly. Where you typed "(tl)", somehow it saw "Rtl)".

In my experience, the bug doesn't occur as long as the text I'm pasting has a newline at the end. Maybe you could try that. That is, instead of just selecting the text you want to copy, select a blank line after it too.

Alternatively, you could type everything by hand instead of pasting... but that sounds pretty painful. Hopefully you don't have to resort to that.

EDIT: I tried to reproduce that pasting issue with Racket 6.4 on Windows 10, and I don't get it anymore. You're using Racket 6.4 too, so are you using a particular version of Windows?

I would want to follow my mzscheme instructions to install arc, but I'll let it pass for now because i want us to solved this Issue.. If I do that your instructions might work but not knowing what's exactly going on without mzscheme, (i think so) :)
