3== Supported Platforms
5This page lists all platforms along with the latest CHICKEN version that has been confirmed to build and run. For platform-specific notes on how to install, see the [[platforms]] page.
7If your platform is not listed here, or the CHICKEN version is very old, it doesn't mean CHICKEN doesn't run on it. It just means that nobody has tested (recently) on the platform, the table simply hasn't been updated by anyone yet.
9Important note with regard to '''manyargs''': since CHICKEN 4.11, manyargs no longer depends on assembly code to implement the apply hack (related to the number of arguments a procedure may receive). So, for versions >= 4.11, manyargs is implied.
