> Have you looked at Scheme shell, scsh?
Thank you for the suggestion: scsh is really very intesting and the
site has very useful examples.
I was just trying not to bet on specific implementations before I have
learned how to use the very basics of the language; and I think that
to do that I would most of all benefit from reading very simple,
little, non-implementation-dependent practical scripts.
In a sense, I am trying to figure out what I have to learn in
programming, and I would like very much that it turns to be Scheme.
One unmentionable reason for this is that I think id that heavily
indented Scheme code looks insanely great. One more serious reason is
that I think that operations on list suit my brain.
At cognitive level, I am heavily invested in fields other than
programming (building technology) and for a number of reasons I feel
that if I don't manage to use Scheme as soon as possible, this may
never happen. I'd not mind to end up writing in a child-like Scheme
for a while or even forever, provided that I very soon put myself in
the position of being capable to write some working code.
