Vicare Scheme is an R6RS compliant fork of Ikarus Scheme, aiming to become a native compiler for R6 Scheme producing single threaded programs running on Intel x86 32-bit and 64-bit processors; it is tested only on GNU+Linux, no official support for other platforms is present.

Vicare offers arbitrary precision integers through GMP. It implements an optionally included foreign-functions interface based on Libffi.

Ikarus Scheme is an almost R6RS compliant implementation of the Scheme programming language; it is the creation of Abdulaziz Ghuloum, which retired from development in 2010.
