folks, what's a good portable Scheme that runs on Plan 9 and modern nixes? should i just stick to tinyscheme?
s9fes? or is the latter too niche? i'd like my code to be portable to other schemes if possible.

Chicken looks nice but it doesn't look like it supports Plan 9

OOoor if I can write it in a portable way, what should I targer?
all I need is file access and maaaaybe fork(). is R5RS enough?

@eli_oat probably not out of the box as it needs C99 and APE only has C89, but some light patching isn't out of the question.
but I was hoping for something more mature.

@grainloom ah, gotchya -- didn't know that! Thanks. Also not sure about this one, but maybe

@jeko Musarella development and a port/reimagination of Guix. also some other hobby projects, like my blog, maybe some gamedev, etc.

@gnomon it doesn't work out of the box and the JIT code almost definitely isn't portable

@grainloom it doesn't work out of the box??

Thank you, I'll go ping Andy about that. Thanks for letting me know.

Sounds like dependency on C99 is core to some internal changes and won't be easily patched out.…
