Hi Federico and welcome to the CHICKEN community!

I've just got a small note on your build setup. Most CHICKEN projects use a .setup-file and then build with chicken-install. There should be a thousand examples of setup-files (here's a small one, and here's a large one). Setup-files and chicken-install do tend to clobber your project folder with binary files as well as installing things in /usr. If you can live with that, it's nice in that it integrates in the other CHICKEN tools (like cross-compiling and salmonella).

The R5RS spec itself is actually pretty accessible.
"Learn Scheme in Fixnum Days" is also quite good.

There are some DuckDuckGo shortcuts ( ) !csc and
!csw which look up the search term in the Chicken Scheme Chickadee and
Wiki respectively. Just type the short code and then your search term in
to the search box at .

Chickadee ( ) allows you to search the APIs for
CHICKEN and its Eggs.

No worries! Welcome to the community.
