Larceny is an implementation of the Scheme programming language built around the Twobit optimizing compiler. Larceny offers several back-ends able to target native x86 and ARMv7 code. Petit Larceny is also available and emits C source code, which can then be further compiled to native code with an ordinary C compiler.
Older versions (<0.98) included support for the SPARC architecture in Larceny, and for Microsoft's Common Language Runtime via Common Larceny.
Larceny supports all major Scheme standards (R5RS, IEEE/ANSI, R6RS, and R7RS. The Larceny software is open source[better source needed] and available online.
