This chapter documents all the functionality of
gmeteor, you must prepare a specification file, which is
a Scheme program that calls
gmeteor as a library.
provides two alternative interfaces that the specification file can use.
The simple interface (the one described in Tutorial) is easy
to use, but it lets you design only one filter per invocation of
gmeteor. You will probably use this interface in most cases. The
message-passing interface is more complicated, but it lets you
design many filters at the same time. In this interface, each filter is
an abstract data type (an “object”, if you wish) that reacts to
The rest of this chapter is organized as follows. Optimal Filters

Invoking gmeteor describes
gmeteor's command-line options,
which are also part of the simple interface. Finally,
Message-Passing Interface documents the message-passing interface.
