 Summary
 *******
 
 The report gives a defining description of the programming language
 Scheme.  Scheme is a statically scoped and properly tail-recursive
 dialect of the Lisp programming language invented by Guy Lewis Steele
 Jr. and Gerald Jay Sussman.  It was designed to have an exceptionally
 clear and simple semantics and few different ways to form expressions.
 A wide variety of programming paradigms, including imperative,
 functional, and message passing styles, find convenient expression in
 Scheme.
 
 The introduction offers a brief history of the language and of the
 report.
 
 The first three chapters present the fundamental ideas of the language
 and describe the notational conventions used for describing the
 language and for writing programs in the language.
 
 Chapters ⇒Expressions and ⇒Program structure describe the
 syntax and semantics of expressions, programs, and definitions.
 
 Chapter ⇒Standard procedures describes Scheme's built-in
 procedures, which include all of the language's data manipulation and
 input/output primitives.
 
 Chapter ⇒Formal syntax and semantics provides a formal syntax
 for Scheme written in extended BNF, along with a formal denotational
 semantics.  An example of the use of the language follows the formal
 syntax and semantics.
 
 The report concludes with a list of references and an alphabetic index.
