The ease of integrating C libraries and the rapid turnaround offered by the interpreter make Chicken a great prototyping platform. Many of us automate our sysadmin tasks with Chicken.

It's easy as pie to make web apps with CHICKEN's web server \emph{Spiffy} and the web framework \emph{Awful}. Our wiki is a good example of this. As you can see, calling C functions is quite easy.  If you have longer C code, you can also write your functions in a separate C file and compile those against your Chicken program. You can just call those functions from Chicken. compile those against your CHICKEN program. You can just call those functions from CHICKEN. \section{Cool, I want to get started!} Great to have you on board! Chances are your operating system already packages Chicken Scheme. Try that first.
