I’ve been learning Scheme recently, here’re the steps to get started with Scheme quickly in Linux.
If you don’t know how to use emacs, you have a look at a tutorial at http://xahlee.org/emacs/emacs.html.
Install mit scheme. There are lot of scheme implementations. To get started quickly, we don’t want to spend too much time on choosing which implementation to use.
With emacs and mit scheme installed, it’s time launch emacs and start coding.
Use M-x run-scheme in emacs to start a scheme interactive console.
Now type (+ 1 2 3)
the result will be 6 and you should see it immediatly.
Great, we just write our first line of scheme code.
