Before it was called Gambit, the language was named ...

Before it was called gambit by Marc Feeley, the language was named SIS (Simple Implementation of Scheme) and formed the original Prolog package.
Gambit 4.6.0 consists of two main programs: gsi, the Gambit [gambit4.6.0.exe] scheme interpreter, and gsc, the Gambit - 0MB Scheme compiler.
The interpreter contains the complete execution and debugging environment.
The compiler is the interpreter extended with the capability of generating executable files.
The compiler can produce standalone executables or compiled modules which can be loaded at run time. Interpreted code and compiled code can be freely mixed.
The source code distributions must be compiled with a C or C++ compiler.
Most important functions of Gambit 4.6.0:
• The Gambit-C system conforms to the R4RS, R5RS and IEEE Scheme standards and implements all optional features.
• Because the system is mostly written in Scheme and the compiler generates portable C code, it is easy to port the system as well as programs compiled with it to any platform with a decent C or C++ compiler.
• The compiler includes several powerful program transformations such as user procedure inlining, partial-evaluation, and lambda-lifting. With appropriate declarations in the source code the executable programs generated by the compiler run roughly as fast as equivalent C programs.
• Stable releases typically have very few bugs.
News in the current Gambit version:
• Fix misc/set-regs, which changes the number of virtual machine registers.
• Fix bug 123 so that read-line when reading until eof will not prematurely stop.
• Fix frame of "return to C handler" so that it matches expected size (2 slots)
• Improve ARM processor endianness determination by include/gambit. h.
