    239239printing "Hello, world" to standard out with Chicken scoring quite
    240240well. Although it may seem silly at first it makes sense to compare

     244On the [[http://lists.nongnu.org/mailman/listinfo/chicken-hackers|chicken-hackers]]
     245mailing list, [[user:jim-ursetto|Jim Ursetto]]
     246[[http://lists.nongnu.org/archive/html/chicken-hackers/2011-03/msg00002.html|resurrected a thread]]
     247from 2009 about using the {{-j}} option for make to build Chicken in
     248parallel. Jim provided a
     249[[http://lists.nongnu.org/archive/html/chicken-hackers/2011-03/msg00010.html|patch]]
     250which seems to work fine.  See also

     253[[user:mario-domenech-goulart|Mario Goulart]] pointed a
     254[[http://lists.nongnu.org/archive/html/chicken-hackers/2011-02/msg00001.html|symlinking issue]]
     255with {{libchicken.so}} which was affecting cross-compiled
     256Chickens.  Mario also posted a
     257[[http://lists.nongnu.org/archive/html/chicken-hackers/2011-02/msg00000.html|heads-up]]
     258regarding to eggs using procedures and type specifier that have been
     259removed from newer versions of Chicken.  See tickets
     260[[http://bugs.call-cc.org/ticket/507|#507]],
     261[[http://bugs.call-cc.org/ticket/508|#508]],

     265Still on chicken-hackers and resurrecting topics,
     266[[user:peter-bex|Peter Bex]] re-emerged the
     267[[http://lists.nongnu.org/archive/html/chicken-hackers/2011-03/msg00000.html|distributed egg repository discussion]].
     268Peter has written a
     269[[http://wiki.call-cc.org/distributed-egg-repos|detailed document]]
     270covering pros, cons, design goals and description of the system.
     271The mailing list thread is quite long, with several suggestions and
     272considerations from chicken-hackers subscribers.
     273
     274Chicken has been mentioned on a couple of [[http://reddit.com|reddit]] threads recently:
     275[[http://www.reddit.com/r/programming/comments/fvrtr/chicken_portable_efficient_c_compiler_for_the/|Chicken - Portable, Efficient C Compiler for the Scheme Programming Language]] (sic) and [[http://www.reddit.com/r/scheme/comments/ft2q5/using_scheme_for_practical_projects/|Using Scheme for practical projects?]].  The latter has some kind comments from [[http://demonastery.org/|Zane Ashby]], who has been blogging about Scheme in general and Chicken (see [[http://demonastery.org/52/chicken-scheme-and-ffi/|Chicken Scheme, and FFI]] and [[http://demonastery.org/51/chicken-scheme-and-web-rad/|Chicken Scheme, and Web RAD]] for example).
