Thanks, FoxtrotUniform!

Does Scheme run on Windows? I was looking to install Scheme a while back but wasn't sure what to look for.

    A good place to start with Scheme on Windows is DrScheme, as it has a nice GUI with some decent documentation to boot and works straight out of the box (see. zip file). Bringing it back to perl, the ever-inventive Autrijus has made Inline::MzScheme which allows you to interface with mzscheme within perl. If that's not enough the industrious samtregar has created Inline::Guile which is an interface to Guile, the GNU implementation of Scheme (as I understand it).


      Thanks, broquaint!

      I just installed DrScheme and I'm now having a little fun with the parentheses :)


        While not a new language per say, you might be interested in a module I have written called fp. Its something I had kicking around for a while, just an experiment in functional programming in perl really. I recently uploaded an update to it which includes a sub-package full of higher-order functions which might be of interest.

    There are zillions of Scheme interpreters. It seems that everybody, at some point in their lives, write or at least try to write a Scheme implementation. -- Well, I haven't written one yet, but I have ported one to Minix. Lost the source when my laptop was stolen (aeons ago), and then lost interest. (Why Minix? The beast had only 2 MB of RAM and couldn't run anything else :) ) is a good resource for schemers. The FAQ lists some of the implementation. For a quick start try this Java applet straight from your browser. Did you know that you can have a complete Scheme implementation in your pocket?
