Scheme Editors: Add DrScheme

Jun 8, 2009 at 11:43 PM

DrScheme is an excellent Scheme editor; especially R6RS.

You should add it to the list! :)

I agree that it is nice, but can I run IronScheme with it?  (I have never thought about that!).

I use DrScheme to write my code and then run it on IronScheme, Ikarus, Ypsilon, and obviously PLT.

By the letter of the law, when you hit "Run" in DrScheme it will only run your code on PLT.

Perhaps that would be a nice feature for it?

According to Eli it is possible!

[16:40:19] <leppie> can one run another scheme process under DrScheme? Eg Ikarus
[16:40:48] <leppie> or is it too tightly bound to mzscheme?
[16:46:55] <eli> leppie: You can, but it'll be very different than the mzscheme case, since it will need to deal with the external process.  (unlike in the mzscheme case)
[16:47:14] <eli> The DrACL2 thing does something similar with Lisp, IIUC.

Anyone up for it?  :)

Interested? Yes.

Able? No.

I posted on it here:

Cool!

Except Google does nothing for 'DrACL2'  :(
