MIT/GNU Scheme - Scheme development environment

scheme [OPTIONS]

MIT/GNU Scheme is an implementation of the Scheme programming language, providing an interpreter, compiler, source-code debugger, integrated Emacs-like editor, and a large runtime library. MIT/GNU Scheme is best suited to programming large applications with a rapid development cycle.

These are some of the more common command-line options. For full information about available options, see the Texinfo documentation. Additional options may also be supported by the band. Use the --help option (last) to see descriptions of all available command-line options.
Report various version numbers, then exit.
--heap NBLOCKS
Specify the size of the heap in 1024-word blocks.
--stack NBLOCKS
Specify the size of the stack in 1024-word blocks.
--library PATH
Specify where to look for Scheme's binary files. PATH should be a colon-separated list of directory names.
Print the actual values of the machine parameters (like those above).
Don't load the user's init file (~/.scheme.init or scheme.ini).
Start the text editor after starting Scheme.
--eval EXPRESSION...
Evaluate the specified expressions after starting Scheme.
--load FILENAME...
Load the specified files after starting Scheme.


MIT/GNU Scheme refers to a large number of environment variables. See the Texinfo documentation for details.

The full documentation for MIT/GNU Scheme is maintained as a set of Texinfo manuals. If the info program is properly installed at your site, the command
info "MIT/GNU Scheme User"
should give you access to the complete User's manual. Programming information is located in the Info topics "MIT/GNU Scheme Ref" and "SOS". Usage of the IMAIL mail reader is located in the "IMAIL" topic.
