I am a novice going through the book SICP. When doing the exercises, I would like to easily switch between the MIT course materials, some relevant webpages and my code. Preferably, I would like to have a compiler such as Eclipse for Java, i.e. a program that highlights my code and at the same time compiles it (in a split screen). Is there anything comparable in regards of Lisp/Scheme? I am working on a Mac OS X 10.10 (Yosemite).
I have downloaded GNU Emacs from http://emacsformacosx.com/
however this seems to require much knowledge to get into a decent working flow. I hope you can finally get me started, I have struggled now for some time with that... If there is simply no such compiler could anyone tell me how to compile a file using terminal?
Thank you so much for your help.
P.S.: As of now, I have not found a decent tutorial on how to get started with Scheme. Did I miss anything?
