A nifty lisp interpreter
Gojira is a dialect of lisp derived primarily from scheme. It's intended to be a somewhat minimal but entirely usable language, with some experimental ideas and practicality as a goal.
It is something of a pet project for me; a bit more serious than a toy project, but I'm not going to advise you use it over python, etc (yet).
It's also fairly portable, relying on a small subset of the libc for core functionality.
git clone --recursive https://github.com/dragontux/gojira.git cd gojira ./configure # the default prefix is /usr/local, use --prefix= to change it make make install make test
To run a file,
gojira example/colors.scm # To run multiple files in the same environment: gojira example/colors.scm example/calc.scm # To continue interpreting after finished running: gojira -i example/fizzbuzz.scm
