Common Lisp vs Chicken Scheme: What are the differences?

Developers describe Common Lisp as "The modern, multi-paradigm, high-performance, compiled, ANSI-standardized descendant of the long-running family of Lisp programming languages". Lisp was originally created as a practical mathematical notation for computer programs, influenced by the notation of Alonzo Church's lambda calculus. It quickly became the favored programming language for artificial intelligence (AI) research. As one of the earliest programming languages, Lisp pioneered many ideas in computer science, including tree data structures, automatic storage management, dynamic typing, conditionals, higher-order functions, recursion, and the self-hosting compiler. [source: wikipedia]. On the other hand, Chicken Scheme is detailed as "A programming language, specifically a compiler and interpreter". Fast implementation of Scheme programming languge, which compiles directly to C.

Common Lisp and Chicken Scheme can be primarily classified as "Languages" tools.

Chicken Scheme is an open source tool with 77 GitHub stars and 3 GitHub forks. Here's a link to Chicken Scheme's open source repository on GitHub.

        What are some alternatives to Chicken Scheme and Common Lisp?
        Racket
        It is a general-purpose, multi-paradigm programming language based on the Scheme dialect of Lisp. It is designed to be a platform for programming language design and implementation. It is also used for scripting, computer science education, and research.
        Clojure
        Clojure is designed to be a general-purpose language, combining the approachability and interactive development of a scripting language with an efficient and robust infrastructure for multithreaded programming. Clojure is a compiled language - it compiles directly to JVM bytecode, yet remains completely dynamic. Clojure is a dialect of Lisp, and shares with Lisp the code-as-data philosophy and a powerful macro system.
        PHP
        Fast, flexible and pragmatic, PHP powers everything from your blog to the most popular websites in the world.
        JavaScript
        JavaScript is most known as the scripting language for Web pages, but used in many non-browser environments as well such as node.js or Apache CouchDB. It is a prototype-based, multi-paradigm scripting language that is dynamic,and supports object-oriented, imperative, and functional programming styles.
        Python
        Python is a general purpose programming language created by Guido Van Rossum. Python is most praised for its elegant syntax and readable code, if you are just beginning your programming career python suits you best.
