Bigloo is a Scheme implementation devoted to one goal: enabling Scheme based programming style where C(++) is usually required.
Bigloo attempts to make Scheme practical by offering features usually presented by traditional programming languages but not offered by Scheme and functional programming.
Bigloo compiles Scheme modules. bigloo delivers small and fast stand alone binary executables. Bigloo enables full connections between Scheme and C programs, between Scheme and Java programs, and between Scheme and C# programs.
Here are some key features of "bigloo":
An extended Java interface
An extended C interface
An object oriented layer
An explicit type system and compile time type mismatch detections
The current version has been compiled and tested on:
x86-linux (Debian 3.0, Mandrake 8.1, Sun JDK 1.4.1)
x86-win32 (Windows 2000, XP)
PowerPC G4 (MacOS X xnu-201.5)
PowerPC G3 (Gentoo Linux)
SPARC (Solaris 2.6 and 2.8, Sun JDK 1.3, Linux (Debian))
Compaq Alpha (Digital Unix 4.0f aka True64, JDK 1.3)
Compaq Alpha (Linux 2.2 (Debian))
Arm (Linux (Debian))
IA64 (Linux (Debian))
IBM P660 (AIX RS-6000 4.3.3)
Even if not tested, it should run correctly on:
IBM RS-6000 (AIX)
SGI (IP20 and IP22)
MAC PPC (2.2.15pre20)
