Oaklisp

Oaklisp is a dialect of the Scheme programming language designed for teaching computer science. The language follows the Lisp tradition of treating code as data and uses a minimalist syntax that encourages users to think in terms of simple expressions and functions. Oaklisp allows for easy manipulation of nested lists and provides convenient tools for meta-programming, making it well-suited for introducing students to concepts like recursion, higher-order functions, first-class continuations, and non-strictly evaluating operators.
