The Fenius programming language

Fenius (formerly Hel) is an extensible programming language combining Lisp-style macros with a more conventional syntax.

The file example.fen contains some example code.

Fenius is still in initial stages of development.

For more information, see my blog.


You will need Chez Scheme. On Debian Testing, you can install it with:

sudo apt-get install chezscheme9.5

Then you can run:

  • To get an interactive prompt: chezscheme9.5 --script fenius.scm -i
  • To run a Fenius script: chezscheme9.5 --script fenius.scm file.fen
