Gambit REPL is a compact development environment for the Scheme programming language based on the Gambit Scheme programming system. Use it on iPhone, iPod touch and iPad devices to learn the Scheme programming language. Hack scripts on the go!
What's New in Version 6.1
- Gambit REPL is now based on the Gambit interpreter v4.6.4 which is slightly faster than the previous version
- On iPad, function keys F1,...,F10 enter digits 1,2,...,9,0 by default
- A file access issue on iOS 5.0 has been solved
Surprisingly complete R5RS implementation
This is surprisingly complete R5RS implementation for iOS. Seems quite able to support learning and practicing scheme programming and working through examples in such classics as SISC, Little Schemer, Seasoned Schemer, EOPL without the need to lug around a full laptop.
It will not disappoint.
Great App; Another Port?
Best programming app I have used on iphone/itouch. Any plans to port Jazz Scheme? Since you ported Gambit, you'd probably be the best person to port the rest of Jazz Scheme. You could probably use existing X server app for the GUI stuff. Just a suggestion to make a really good app a great app.
...but it crashes occasionally. I love the features though, an I think it's an elegant mobile Lisp interpreter. No mobile app is for large projects, but this app is great for learning Lisp. I also wish you had a Common Lisp version, but, MIT Scheme itself isn't what I'm reviewing, right?
