Gambit REPL app for iPhone/iPod touch/iPad

A version of the Gambit Scheme system for iPhone/iPod touch/iPad is
now available on the Apple App Store:

http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/gambit-repl/id434534076?mt=8&ls=1

“Gambit REPL” is a complete version of Gambit (http://
dynamo.iro.umontreal.ca/~gambit) including the interpreter, debugger
and built-in library (but not the compiler). The standard REPL is
provided and also a script editor. Scripts can be saved, attached to
function keys, and the “main” function of the application can be
redefined to customize the application to your needs. Applications
can be debugged remotely by telneting to the device from a desktop
machine.

The application is sold for $0.99 as a demonstration that you can
distribute on the App Store paid applications written in Scheme and
containing an interpreter, something that wasn’t clear with previous
versions of the App Store developer agreement.

A version of Gambit REPL for Android is not planned (by me). The
Gambit Scheme system compiles fine on Android (for example see
https://github.com/seoushi/gambit-android-example), but the user
interface layer would have to be changed and tested, and I don’t own
an Android device. If someone wants to try porting Gambit REPL to
Android let me know and I can help. The sources of Gambit REPL for
iOS are in the examples/iOS subdirectory of the Gambit source
distribution.

Sorry, but I think you’ve posted to the wrong list. This topic for this
list is the Ruby programming language, not Scheme.

I’m sorry if people think it was inappropriate of me to post this
message to comp.lang.ruby. Given the controversy with previous Apple
developer agreements which apparently prevented or restricted the use
of interpreted languages for developing iPhone apps, I thought some
readers of comp.lang.ruby might be interested in knowing an
interpreter for a semantically close language was available for the
iPhone, and more importantly, that Apple is OK with the distribution
on the App Store of a program that is an interpreter for a scripting
language.

So does this mean we can get a ruboto4iphone app sometime in the future?
