REPL Semantics of Chez Scheme


Chez Scheme represents an example of a high-speed incremental compiler with an interactive environemnt that follows a traditional lisp REPL behavior. It is interesting to note that Chez Scheme achieves high performance while still providing a dynamic environment, though the optimizations that Chez Scheme can make are limited by the top level semantics.

Official Documentation

The Chez Scheme User's Guide Version 8 provides a chapter on the Interaction Environment of Chez Scheme. The reader is referred to this reading for the full description.
