Ships in 3-5 business days
NEW EDITION! Scheme 9 from Empty Space reproduces the completely self-contained
and heavily commented C and Scheme source code to a full, real-world
interpreter for the Scheme programming language. By means of extensive
annotations, examples, and numerous figures, it answers a lot of questions
about crafting an interpreter, including:
How does automatic memory management work?
How is macro expansion implemented?
How do lexical scoping and dynamic scoping work?
How is arbitrary precision arithmetics implemented?
How does tail call elimination work?
How are first-class continuations implemented?
This textbook is intended as a practical guide for everybody who
wants to take a deeper look at the techniques behind the interpretation
of computer programs.
