    9999Scheme is such a minimalist and easy to parse language that there are
    100100\emph{thousands} of implementations. However, implementing a
    101101\emph{good} Scheme is nontrivial. Of the implementations that are not

    118118The ease of integrating C libraries and the rapid turnaround offered

    189189As you can see, calling C functions is quite easy.  If you have longer
    190190C code, you can also write your functions in a separate C file and
    191 compile those against your Chicken program. You can just call those
    192 functions from Chicken.
