This thoroughly updated edition of The Scheme Programming Language provides anintroduction to Scheme and a definitive reference for standard Scheme, presented in a clear andconcise manner. Written for professionals and students with some prior programming experience, itbegins by leading the programmer gently through the basics of Scheme and continues with anintroduction to some of the more advanced features of the language. Many exercises are presented tohelp reinforce the lessons learned, and answers to the exercises are given in a new appendix. Mostof the remaining chapters are dedicated to the reference material, which describes in detail thestandard features of Scheme included in the Revised Report on Scheme and the ANSI/IEEE standard forScheme.Numerous examples are presented throughout the introductory and reference portions of thetext, and a unique set of extended example programs and applications, with additional exercises, arepresented in the final chapter. Reinforcing the book's utility as a reference text are appendixesthat present the formal syntax of Scheme, a summary of standard forms and procedures, and abibliography of Scheme resources. The Scheme Programming Language stands alone as an introduction toand essential reference for Scheme programmers. It is also useful as a supplementary text for anycourse that uses Scheme.The Scheme Programming Language is illustrated by artist Jean-Pierre Hebert,who writes Scheme programs to extend his ability to create sophisticated works of digitalart.
