|Full description=An implementation of the Scheme programming language built to be used as an extension language. It's a library you can link into your programs. Your program has full access to the interpreter's data structure, so you can extend Guile with your own primitives, datatypes, and syntax, and tailor the language to your application. It also lets more people use your language, as they needn't learn the internals of your app. They just need to understand the language and the primitives you've provided, and they can trade and share ideas by passing around scripts without you. It has arrays, lists, modules, objects, first class functions, and garbage collection.

Guile

https://www.gnu.org/software/guile
An implementation of the Scheme programming language built to be used as an extension language. It's a library you can link into your programs. Your program has full access to the interpreter's data structure, so you can extend Guile with your own primitives, datatypes, and syntax, and tailor the language to your application. It also lets more people use your language, as they needn't learn the internals of your app. They just need to understand the language and the primitives you've provided, and they can trade and share ideas by passing around scripts without you. It has arrays, lists, modules, objects, first class functions, and garbage collection.
