Anyone wanting a chicken manual in pdf form right now can try the one I generated directly off the wiki:

I made it to use on my kindle but unfortunately it is not optimal for that purpose.

In addition you can use the command-line version of manual-labor
directly to build the manual from a Chicken snapshot, or as shown
below, a copy of the manual from the wiki:

$ chicken-install manual-labor
$ svn co --username anonymous --password "" manual
$ manual-labor manual manual-html

The top page is "The User's Manual.html".  The makefile recipe Felix
provided will include a nice launch page as "index.html"; otherwise,
for convenience you can just link or copy The User's Manual to

$ cd manual-html
$ ln -s "The User's Manual.html" index.html
