CHICKEN is a simple Scheme-to-C compiler supporting the language features as defined in the 'Revised^5 Report on Scheme'. It supports full tail-recursion and first-class continuations. The code it generates is quite portable; compiled files generated by it (including itself) should work with either no or minor changes on other systems. Linking to C modules and C library functions is straightforward, and compiled programs can easily be embedded into existing C code. The package includes many extra libraries.
