Gauche is an R7RS Scheme implementation developed to be a handy script interpreter, which allows programmers and system administrators to write small to large scripts for their daily chores. Quick startup, built-in system interface, native multilingual support are some of my goals.

Gauche runs on several Unix-like platforms.

See Features for implemented features.


See ChangeLog for details. You can also check the most recent development status at Git repository.


We started to put the draft documentation for the development HEAD, for those who build from repo.


Gauche 0.9.10 - major feature enhancements

See Release notes.


Building from source was failing on the latest MinGW with gcc 10.1. This applies to the release tarball as well. It is addressed on the git master as of today, but you need to install Gauche with Windows binary installer in order to compile from the git repo.


Gauche 0.9.9 - bug fix and enhancements

See Release notes.


Gauche 0.9.8 - some feature enhancements
