Gambit for Android


Here's a preliminary version of Gambit Scheme for the Android platform, inspired by Marc Feeley's iOS version.

Gambit Scheme is a "complete, portable, efficient, and reliable implementation of the Scheme programming language, conforming to the R4RS, R5RS and IEEE Scheme standards, and implementing all optional features. Tail calls and first class continuations conform to the Scheme semantics. The full numeric tower is implemented, including: arbitrary precision integers (bignums), rationals, inexact reals (floating point numbers), and complex numbers."

Gambit for Android includes the ability to interact with a Gambit Scheme REPL (read-evaluate-print-loop), add and save Scheme scripts, and start and telnet into a REPL server running on the device.

Recent changes:
Bug fix: some multiline expressions entered in the REPL window were not being evaluated properly (this bug did not affect expressions entered via "scripts" or via the REPL server).

Crashes on nexus 5 I would have liked it if it was able to provide a working repl on my device

No documentation Pitifully under-documented. Useless toy language.

Keep crashing on Nexus 5 I really like gambit-c scheme and am happy to see it on my phone, but it always crashes when I start the repl and type. Not sure if I can collect some log for debug.

Excellent! Saw this on the net, reddit and now five mins later I've tried my first lines of scheme from SCIP and no bugs. Nexus 7 here - recommended for learning.Thanks Keith!
