Frying Scheme Interpreters

A generic Java interface for all Scheme interpreters out there, built on top of the NetBeans Platform.

Tons of Scheme interpreters out there...

We have SCM (one of my favourites), and SISC (in Java, one of my favourites, too), and JScheme, and BigLoo, Chicken (with their Eggs Unlimited!) and Guile. And lots more.

And I want to incorporate several of them to the Scheme IDE I'm building on top of the NetBeans Platform.

... and one interface to rule them all

So I've cooked a generic Scheme Interpreter in my kitchen to invoke any Scheme interpreter, and I'll later on get different implementations properly fried in the IDE. A hopefully interesting read if you want to know how to start building your own Public APIs in top of the NetBeans Platform.

Happy NetBeans-ing,
