Royal Scheme will eventually grow to be a real, usable, embeddable Scheme implemented in ANSI C.
A primary goal of Royal Scheme is documenting the development of a real language implementation to show that mortals can accomplish the task.
Example build and use.

Thanks to Abdulaziz Ghuloum for his paper "An Incremental Approach to Compiler Construction". The pedagogy of his paper inspired the incremental development of Royal Scheme.
Thanks to Alex Shinn for making his Chibi-Scheme implementation open source. Chibi-Scheme has inspired much of the code in Royal Scheme.
