       mit-scheme - Scheme development environment


       mit-scheme [OPTIONS]


       MIT/GNU  Scheme  is  an  implementation  of  the Scheme programming language, providing an
       interpreter, compiler, source-code debugger, integrated Emacs-like  editor,  and  a  large
       runtime  library.   MIT/GNU Scheme is best suited to programming large applications with a
       rapid development cycle.


       These are some of the more  common  command-line  options.   For  full  information  about
       available options, see the Texinfo documentation.

       --heap NBLOCKS
              Specify  the  size  of the heap in 1024-word blocks.  The default heap size is 4096

       --stack NBLOCKS
              Specify the size of the stack in 1024-word blocks.  The default stack size  is  128

       --library PATH
              Specify  where to look for Scheme's binary files.  PATH should be a colon-separated
              list of directory names.

              Don't load the user's init file.

              Start the text editor automatically.

       --eval EXPRESSION...
              Evaluate the specified expressions after starting Scheme.

       --load FILENAME...
              Load the specified files after starting Scheme.

              Print a summary of the command-line options, including default values.

              Architecture-specific executable.

              Link to architecture-specific executable, to allow  multiarch  installation.   When
              multiple architectures are installed, use update-alternatives(8) to choose.


       MIT/GNU  Scheme  refers  to  a  large  number  of  environment variables.  See the Texinfo
       documentation for details.
