@holger I kinda want something small and easy to learn, interactive, and functional. Common Lisp is nice, but it feels somewhat large to learn on my little spare time.
Also Scheme has a full numerical tower which is attractive. I like that I can use real numbers without extra syntax and coercing.
@holger I like guile but what confuses me w.r.t scheme is the compatibility problem, i.e. I can't make out if what I write in Guile will run on other implementations. Racket feels a bit more complete with the module system, Scribble, larger core in general, and nice comprehensive docs (AFAIU).
