"Safe if used as prescribed" (Philip K. Dick, "Ubik")
TinyScheme is a lightweight Scheme interpreter that implements as large a subset of R5RS as was possible without getting very large and complicated. It is meant to be used as an embedded scripting interpreter for other programs. As such, it does not offer IDEs or extensive toolkits although it does sport a small top-level loop, included conditionally. A lot of functionality in TinyScheme is included conditionally, to allow developers freedom in balancing features and footprint.
As an embedded interpreter, it allows multiple interpreter states to coexist in the same program, without any interference between them. Programmatically, foreign functions in C can be added and values can be defined in the Scheme environment. Being a quite small program, it is easy to comprehend, get to grips with, and use.
The latest version has shrunk again. When you conditionally exclude the more advanced features, the object file in Linux Intel is smaller than 64k.
Supposedly, LispMe is based on this?
