Embeddable Scheme interpreter

Elk is a Scheme interpreter intended to be used as a general, reusable extension language subsystem for integration into existing and future applications. Elk can also be used as a stand-alone implementation of the Scheme programming language.

One purpose of the Elk project is to end the recent proliferation of mutually incompatible Lisp-like extension languages. Instead of inventing and implementing yet another extension language, application programmers can integrate Elk into their application to make it extensible and highly customizable.
