"SIOD" a.k.a. "Scheme in One Defun" a.k.a. "Scheme in One Day".
<URL:http://people.delphi.com/gjc/siod.html> It's roughly an R3RS
Scheme, with a bunch of miscellaneous but useful extensions
(including a lot of C library & Unix hooks). Its main claim to fame
is that it's *small* and fast-starting, and easy to integrate into
C programs to provide an extension language. Its main drawback (IMHO)
is that its "roughly R3RS" syntax & primitives are *way* too different
from the current R5RS.
