<programming> (Originally "Schemer", by analogy with Planner
and Conniver). A small, uniform Lisp dialect with clean
semantics, developed initially by Guy Steele and Gerald Sussman in 1975. Scheme uses applicative order reduction
and lexical scope. It treats both functions and
continuations as first-class objects.
One of the most used implementations is DrScheme, others
include Bigloo, Elk, Liar, Orbit, Scheme86 (Indiana
U), SCM, MacScheme (Semantic Microsystems), PC Scheme
(TI), MIT Scheme, and T.

There have been a series of revisions of the report defining
Scheme, known as RRS (Revised Report on Scheme), R2RS
(Revised Revised Report ..), R3RS, R3.99RS, R4RS.
