- name: mit-scheme
- website: https://www.gnu.org/software/mit-scheme/
- It's small and useful for learning. It's used specifically in the book SICP and using other langes/lisps have different attributes, making some of the lessons taught in the book not convey to the reader properly (Dr Racket has a mode for mit-scheme, but it's way too bulky)
- is it open source: yes
- tarball: http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/mit-scheme/stable.pkg/9.2/mit-scheme-9.2.tar.gz
Oh alright. In that case what should I do to use it on my own for the time being? I'm trying to avoid make files since they seem to leave a bit of a mess sometimes. I read a reddit thread saying making a package would be something to do, but I'm not sure how packages work in all honesty. What would be the next best course of action?
@DataDrake I was actually trying to remove my original task. I had found the racket package in the Solus repository, but didn't knew that it also contained the IDE (DrRacket).
Once I downloaded the racket package, I realized my mistake.
I was trying to delete my original task, but I wasn't able to do so. So I thought of closing my task as a duplicate. The mit-scheme task was the most closely related task I could find and so I tried to close my task as a duplicate of mit-scheme. But I accidentally did the opposite and closed this task as a duplicate of my task.
I apologize again and I am sorry for this mess.
Please do whatever is necessary, even if this means banning or deleting me.
