SISC (second Interpreter of Scheme Code) is an extensible Java-based interpreter of the algorithmic language Scheme. It uses modern interpretation techniques and handily outperforms all existing Java interpreters (often by more than an order of magnitude). In addition, SISC is a complete implementation of the language. The entire R5RS Scheme standard is supported, with no exceptions. This includes a full number tower including complex number support and arbitrary precision integers and floating point numbers, proper tail recursion, and full support for first-class continuations (not just escaping continuations as in many other interpreters).
