  • Implementations (That I Use):
    • Chez Scheme: One of the fastest Schemes, requires a runtime blob, very limited libraries, fantastic REPL with inline editing, R6RS version.
    • Chicken Scheme: Fairly slow compiler & interpreter, compiles to adequately fast native binaries, enormous library selection, shitty low-tech REPL, R5RS/R7RS hybrid.
    • Gambit Scheme: Old, currently maintained, very fast, R7RS with some quirks. Good support for native FFI.
    • Gerbil Scheme: Reasonably fast, compiles to fast native binaries, limited library selection, adequate REPL, R7RS + new object model.
    • Gauche: Runs OK, but on every platform, and good library selection including GUIs. My go-to for scripting across different machines.
