Gambit programming system where the compiler generates portable C code

The Gambit programming system is a full implementation of the Scheme language which conforms to the R4RS and IEEE Scheme standards. It consists of two main programs gsi-gambit, the Gambit Scheme interpreter, and gsc-gambit, the Gambit Scheme compiler.

Gambit-C is a version of the Gambit programming system in which the compiler generates portable C code, making the whole Gambit-C system and the programs compiled with it easily portable to many computer architectures for which a C compiler is available. With appropriate declarations in the source code the executable programs generated by the compiler run roughly as fast as equivalent C programs.
