|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.

GNU Guile

https://www.gnu.org/software/guile
Guile is the GNU Ubiquitous Intelligent Language for Extensions, the official extension language of the GNU system.

It is an implementation of the Scheme programming language, packaged as a library that can be linked into applications to give them their own extension language. Guile supports other languages as well, giving users of Guile-based applications a choice of languages.

Documentation

The Guile Reference Manual (guile.info) is the primary documentation for Guile. A copy of the R5RS Scheme specification is included too (r5rs.info).

Info format versions of this documentation are installed as part of the normal build process. The texinfo sources are under the doc directory, and other formats like Postscript, PDF, DVI or HTML can be generated from them with Tex and Texinfo tools.

Tutorials and reference manuals also available online.
