6.23 Support for Other Languages

In addition to Scheme, a user may write a Guile program in an increasing number of other languages. Currently supported languages include Emacs Lisp and ECMAScript.

Guile is still fundamentally a Scheme, but it tries to support a wide variety of language building-blocks, so that other languages can be implemented on top of Guile. This allows users to write or extend applications in languages other than Scheme, too. This section describes the languages that have been implemented.
