Texts & Dialects
Here's the list of Scheme language texts that I have found doing
some research for a project...these are not articles in journals,
such as SIGPLAN.
An Introduction to Scheme
Prentice-Hall 1988 ISBN 0-13-496712-7
The Scheme Programming Language (good)
Prentice-Hall 1987 ISBN 0-13-7918864-X
and, of course:
Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs
Abelson, H. & Sussman G.J.
MIT Press 1985 ISBN 0-07-000426-9
which is really a programming text with Scheme as the language used
by the authors to implement the programming techniques they introduce.
The dialects used in each book are:
PC-Scheme for Smith (i believe)
Chez for Dybvig
MIT for Abelson & Sussman
and there are other dialects running around also, such as X-Scheme
C Scheme, and MacIntosh Scheme. Plus there are probably others
that I ignore because they run on machines which, as a WPI student,
I do not have access.
Dybvig has a summary of forms (for Chez), and also states whether
or not the form is essential or optional in the "Revised^3 Report
on the Algorithmic Language Scheme".
Which can be found also in:
SigPlan Notices 21, 12, December 1986
Jonathan Rees, and William Clinger, eds.
