[Chicken-users] Microcontroller schemes

This is a slightly tangential request.

I have a microcontroller project upcoming which would potentially benefit from a bit of DSL magic which, of course, I'd like to do in a scheme.

Chicken, because it compiles to C, would probably be my best bet in terms of 'big' schemes, but I imagine that getting it to work on a microcontroller would be infeasible (that's right, isn't it?).

Given this community's probable range of interests, however, can anyone point me in a useful direction? I'd be most interested in systems which could run on one of the bigger Arduinos, but I think I could shift microcontrollers if the language were right.

I've so far found a few interesting resources, but some of them tend to have a summer-project look.

* There's a nice list of small lisps/schemes at [1], which has a couple of promising pointers, but it's a rather old page. * It mentions TinyScheme[2], which looks quite close, but seems not to have had much activity recently. * Armpit Scheme[3] seems to be targeting just the thing, but also has a left-behind look. * There's a rather interesting list of MCU languages at [4], but, again, this is quite an old page, and some of those descriptions look very much like summer projects.

So, has anyone on this list explored into that area of the computing forest?

Best wishes,
