About the Book

This manual is a printed edition of the official Guile documentation from the Guile 2.0 distribution.

Guile is the official extension language of the GNU Project and is designed to interoperate well with existing programs and libraries written in C. It is an implementation of Scheme, an elegant and conceptually simple dialect of Lisp. Guile promotes interactive and incremental programming, and supports other language front-ends as well, not just Scheme.
