Tiny Scheme interpreters
There are numerous small Lisp/Scheme implementations, and probably most of them are unfinished or unmaintained. I found serious, production-ready tiny Scheme interpreters for you to embed in your C or C++ programs. used by Apple in their operating systems and by GIMP for its scripting language. The latest version is around 5 thousand lines of C plus ~500 lines of Scheme. TinyScheme is easy to embed into C projects, and it has a pretty easy to use API.

It is compatible with R5RS and R7RS.
It has continuations, ratios, complex numbers, macros, keywords, hash-tables, multiprecision arithmetic, generalized set!, unicode, and so on. It does not have syntax-rules or any of its friends, and it does not think there is any such thing as an inexact integer.s7 Scheme also has a good C API (I think it's an improvement on what TinyScheme had to offer). It is much larger than TinyScheme: ~60K lines of C (two-megabyte
s7.cfile!), and ~83K lines of Scheme (a lot of it is optional, though). Hey, it's not that tiny anymore, actually!
