Thumbelina Scheme

My study lisp interpreter, influenced by and implemented in Haskell

Functionality:

  • simplistic repl (with file loading)
  • read the input stream, make SExps
  • special forms: quote (also with ' syntax), if, fun (lambda), def (defun), seq (begin)
  • (map (fun (x) (+ x 1)) list)
  • builtins: car, cdr, eq, eval, read, eq
  • arithmetical functions: +/- and * (both are polymorphic: (+ 2 2) => 4, (+ "str" "cat") => "strcat", ( * "ah" 4) => "ahahahah" etc), number comparison
  • functions: (def (id x) x), (def sqr (fun (x) ( * x x))) etc
  • partial application of functions: (def add (+)), (def add2 (+ 2)), etc

See lisp example files (you can load it in REPL)

Plans for the future:

  • first-class map/fold/filter support
  • laziness by default: lazy ()-brackets and strict evaluation within []-brackets
  • functional purity, monads?
