Dear haskeller,
    Can I destructive rebind a local variable like this
import System.Directory
test filename = do 
  is_dir <- doesDirectoryExist filename
  let filename = if not is_dir then filename else filename
  putStrLn $ " filename " ++ filename
main = test "."
  in GHCi 6.10.1 on WinXP, the ghci aborts silencely when I executes
  after compile it into a executable file. 
C stack overflow in generated code

  I have some code in scheme which works very well 
(define (func x)
  (let ((x x))

    By rebinding a formal variable, we can save naming some varaibles. I
am not good at naming a variable.

    Thank you in advance

Best Regards
