One that I've found particularly useful for net hacking (that
also has a decent internal threads facility) is Rice's "MzScheme"
<URL:>. I've
used it to write a couple of small web client apps, e.g., a little
MzScheme script that fetches stock quotes from the net and extracts
just the few bits I happen to care about from the HTML "eye candy":

	% stockquote SGI IBM HP
	SGI = 17 1/16 = 17.0625
	IBM = 131.0
	HP = 23 3/16 = 23.1875

George Carrette's "SIOD" <URL:>
also has a socket library, and a bunch of sample net & web scripts.
[But... SIOD provides a somewhat older dialect of Scheme than most
people use these days.]
