Scheme script interpreter with multibyte character handling

Gauche is a fast, portable Scheme interpreter with “batteries included”. It conforms to the R5RS and R7RS language standards, supports lots of SRFI out of the box, adds its own object-oriented programming framework, and supports the R7RS library system as well as its own pre-R7RS module system. Gauche is designed for the rapid development of scipts to assist daily work in system administration, text processing, and other fields. It can handle UTF-8, EUC-JP, and Shift JIS character strings natively.
