It is suitable for implementation tasks ranging from scripting to application development, including GUIs, web services, etc.
It includes the DrScheme programming environment, a virtual machine with a just-in-time compiler, tools for creating stand-alone executables, the PLT Scheme web server, extensive libraries, documentation for both beginners and experts, and more.
