gerbil

Meta-dialect of Scheme with post-modern features

Gerbil is an opinionated dialect of Scheme designed for Systems Programming, with a state of the art macro and module system on top of the Gambit runtime. The macro system is based on quote-syntax, and provides the full meta-syntactic tower with a native implementation of syntax-case. It also provides a full-blown module system, similar to PLT Scheme's (sorry, Racket) modules. The main difference from Racket is that Gerbil modules are single instantiation, supporting high performance ahead of time compilation and compiled macros.

Installation

Install the latest version of gerbil as follows:

guix install gerbil

Or install a particular version:

guix install gerbil@0.17.0

You can also install packages in augmented, pure or containerized environments for development or simply to try them out without polluting your user profile. See the guix shell documentation for more information.
