|Short description=The GNU Ubiquitous Intelligent Language for Extensions.
|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.

|Full description='''Guile''' is an implementation of the Scheme programming language, packaged for use in a wide variety of environments. In addition to implementing the R5RS, R6RS, and R7RS Scheme standards, Guile includes full access to POSIX system calls, networking support, multiple threads, dynamic linking, a foreign function call interface, powerful string processing, and HTTP client and server implementations.

Guile can run interactively, as a script interpreter, and as a Scheme compiler to VM bytecode. It is also packaged as a library so that applications can easily incorporate a complete Scheme interpreter/VM. An application can use Guile as an extension language, a clean and powerful configuration language, or as multi-purpose "glue" to connect

primitives provided by the application. It is easy to call Scheme code from C code and vice versa.  Applications can add new functions, data types, control structures, and even syntax to Guile, to create a domain-specific language tailored to the task at hand.

GNU Guile

https://www.gnu.org/software/guile/
The GNU Ubiquitous Intelligent Language for Extensions.

Guile is an implementation of the Scheme programming language, packaged for use in a wide variety of environments. In addition to implementing the R5RS, R6RS, and R7RS Scheme standards, Guile includes full access to POSIX system calls, networking support, multiple threads, dynamic linking, a foreign function call interface, powerful string processing, and HTTP client and server implementations.

Guile can run interactively, as a script interpreter, and as a Scheme compiler to VM bytecode. It is also packaged as a library so that applications can easily incorporate a complete Scheme interpreter/VM. An application can use Guile as an extension language, a clean and powerful configuration language, or as multi-purpose "glue" to connect primitives provided by the application. It is easy to call Scheme code from C code and vice versa. Applications can add new functions, data types, control structures, and even syntax to Guile, to create a domain-specific language tailored to the task at hand.

Guile's VM

Guile contains an efficient compiler and virtual machine. It can be used out of the box to write programs in Scheme, or can easily be integrated with C and C++ programs.

Guile is the GNU Ubiquitous Intelligent Language for Extensions, and the official extension language of the GNU project.
