    Please read what I said in the parent node.

    That's not a proper list, so r5rs doesn't guarantee this will work. It does work with some scheme implementations, but MzScheme says

    for-each: expects type <proper list> as 2nd argument, given: #0=(1 . # +0#); other arguments were: #<procedure:STDIN::59>
    if I type this code in it.

    Update: let me quote from the r5rs.
