Compile Scheme directly to portable C

Pre-Scheme is a statically-typed dialect of the Scheme programming language which compiles to C, suitable for low-level systems programming. Pre-Scheme is implemented using a sophisticated general-purpose compiler, written in Scheme, with demonstrated applications to other programming languages and compilation targets. This project aims to port the compiler to R7RS, the latest Scheme standard, so that it can run on a variety of modern Scheme implementations. The Pre-Scheme language and tooling will also be updated to meet the expectations of a contemporary developer audience, and the compiler framework will be documented and exposed to support future innovations in programming language development and research.
