Find a wrapper for the Tiny C compiler here:

How intriguing! Where are you headed with this? (Dynamic compilation?)

Well, it's currently just usable for dynamically compiling C for
speed-critical things (depending on how good TCC optimizes - probably
not much, but better than interpreted scheme in any case).

Compiling full Scheme dynamically uses too much resources (I assume),
furthermore the compiler isn't really suited for in-core compilation,
in contrast to batch compilation.

One interesting application would be some kind of "sub"-scheme, a simple dialect, perhaps statically typed, that can be used for those
performance critical number crunching.
