Description: The Extension Language Kit, an Scheme implementation
Elk is an implementation of the Scheme programming language,
designed specifically as an embeddable, reusable extension
language subsystem for applications written in C or C++.
Elk is also useful as a stand-alone Scheme implementation.
IIRC, it was one of my first Debian packages, back in 1996. I'm not a Scheme
expert, but another one of my packages (sced) used elk, so I packaged it too.
