Scheme is a general-purpose programming language, descended from
Algol and Lisp, widely used in computing education and research and
a broad range of industrial applications. This thoroughly updated
edition of The Scheme Programming Language provides an introduction
to Scheme and a definitive reference for standard Scheme, presented
in a clear and concise manner. Written for professionals and
students with some prior programming experience, it begins by
leading the programmer gently through the basics of Scheme and
continues with an introduction to some of the more advanced
features of the language. The fourth edition has been substantially
revised and expanded to bring the content up to date with the
current Scheme standard, the Revised6 Report on Scheme. All parts
of the book were updated and three new chapters were added,
covering the language's new library, exception handling, and
record-definition features. The book offers three chapters of
introductory material with numerous examples, eight chapters of
reference material, and one chapter of extended examples and
additional exercises. All of the examples can be entered directly
from the keyboard into an interactive Scheme session. Answers to
many of the exercises, a complete formal syntax of Scheme, and a
summary of forms and procedures are provided in appendixes. The
Scheme Programming Language is the only book available that serves
both as an introductory text in a variety of courses and as an
essential reference for Scheme programmers.
