Hobbit is a small optimizing scheme-to-C compiler written in R4RS Scheme and intended for use together with SCM scheme. It compiles full R4RS (with the exception of mutual tail recursion and hygienic macros) and supports defmacros.
Hobbit treats SCM files as a C library and provides integration of compiled procedures and variables with the SCM interpreter as new primitives. It compiles scheme files to C files and does not provide anything else by itself (eg. calling the C compiler, dynamic loading).
