CPSCM, a Scheme compiler

For long time, I’m thinking about a generative Scheme R5RS implementation. It means that if I need Scheme for a platform XXX, then I take the implementation, adapt a small bootstrap core to the platform XXX, and automatically have got the full Scheme. CPSCM seems fit to this description.

    Thanks for mentioning CPSCM, Oleg. I find your idea of implementing Scheme on top of “exotic” platforms (you mentioned LaTeX macros in private correspondence) intriguing. I haven’t done any LaTeX hacking for a number years, so I’m not sure how hard this would be though (in particular, I suspect CPSCM would need to acquire lambda lifting).
