Hi Nikos,

If you don't want to use 'csc' and really want to go the 'C way', you will need more then the 'chicken.h' file. You will need at least the following files: 'buildtag.h', 'build-version.c', 'chicken.h', 'library.c' and 'runtime.c'. All of them can be found in the top directory of the chicken source.

Once you have these - and put them in a subdirectory called e.g. 'chicken' - you can compile the application like this:

  chicken array1.scm -explicit-use -uses library -optimize-level 5

CHICKEN_FILES="chicken/runtime.c chicken/library.c chicken/build-version.c"

gcc -static -I./chicken array1.c $CHICKEN_FILES -O3 -fno-strict-aliasing -fomit-frame-pointer -lm -o array1

This will also give you a statically linked 'array1', which - in my case - has about the same speed as the one using 'csc -O5'.

Good Luck,

Hi Nikos,

If you remove the definition of the 'main' function and add an expression like this:

    (time (go 200000))

and compile it with:

   csc -static -O5 array1.scm

you should end up with a statically linked application 'array1'
that is optimized for speed (because of the -O5).

Runs in about half a second on my computer.

Good Luck,

Hello everyone,

I am trying to compile a simple scheme program down executable through
C, with no success. My program is array1 from the Kernighan and Van
Wyk Benchmarks, as implemented here [1]. I am using chicken 4.7 on
ubuntu 12.04 (details: [2]) and grabbed the chicken.h header file from
a github repo [3].

In particular, `chicken array1.scm` creates array1.c, but running `gcc
array1.c` throws a big number of "undefined reference to .." ending
with "collect2: ld returned 1 exit status" [4].

So that people help out most, my eventual goal is to compile a
statically linked executable binary. Ideally, therefore, I would need
to have a "chicken.c" or the chicken runtime linked in.

Thanks so much!
