The REPL, or Read-Eval-Print-Loop, is an interactive shell that you can use to interact with the live programming environment that powers Bintracker. The REPL runs on an interpreter for the Scheme programming language, specifically Chicken Scheme. You can control the entire Bintracker application through the REPL.

To get started, type

(info 'repl)

at the repl> prompt at the bottom of the Bintracker main window.

Note that the REPL always uses decimal numbers, even when the number-base setting not set to 10.

For more information on how to interact with Bintracker through the REPL, consult the Developer Documentation.
