I mean full support for every language feature. I guess that some
language features - like "eval" and macros - may impact memory
requirements significantly. Please note that I am not a Scheme
Macros are done at compile time and cost nothing at run time.
Sure, but there should be a lower limit, due to the runtime. For
instance, a "Hello World" program compiled with SBCL (Common Lisp) can
require dozens of megabytes. Anything else that the application does,
will add to that.
The Scheme program (print "Hello world") compiled on Windows and stripped produces a 12K executable. Chicken, like many other Schemes but Common Lisp, is modularized: if you don't use a feature (within reason) it is not included.
