Welcome to the Chicken wiki.

This wiki was created with the purpose of providing documentation for Chicken. Chicken is a Scheme implementation that can compile Scheme code to C as well as interpret it.

Right now we have the following pages:

The User's Manual
The official one
A list of Chicken Eggs.
Svn checkout
Instructions about how to checkout the contents of this wiki using Subversion.
What's to be done for the next Chicken release.
A list of users and contributors to Chicken Scheme.
Tutorials about all things Chicken!
Code snippets
Various small coding examples
