|-V||Prints the version information and exits.|
|-q||"Quick" load, shortcut for chibi-scheme -xchibi This is a slightly different language from (scheme base), which may load faster, and is guaranteed not to load any additional shared libraries.|
|-Q||Extra "quick" load, shortcut for chibi-scheme -xchibi.primitive The resulting environment will only contain the core syntactic forms and primitives coded in C. This is very fast and guaranteed not to load any external files, but is also very limited.|
|Run the "main" procedure when the script finishes loading as in SRFI-22.|
|Loads the given module and runs the "main" procedure it defines (which need not be exported) with a single argument of the list of command-line arguments as in SRFI-22. The name "main" can be overridden with the -r option. [module] may be omitted, in which case it default to chibi.repl. Thus chibi-scheme -R is the recommended means to obtain the advanced REPL.|
|-s||Strict mode, escalating warnings to fatal errors.|
|-f||Change the reader to case-fold symbols as in R5RS.|
|Specifies the initial size of the heap, in bytes, optionally followed by the maximum size the heap can grow to. size can be any integer value, optionally suffixed by "K", for kilobytes, "M" for megabytes, or "G" for gigabytes. -h must be specified before any options which load or evaluate Scheme code.|
|Inserts path on front of the load path list.|
|Appends path to the load path list.|
|Imports module as though "(import module )" were evaluated. If the -x version is used, then module replaces the current environment instead of being added to it.|
|Loads the Scheme source from the file file searched for in the default load path.|
|Evaluates the Scheme expression expr.|
|Evaluates the Scheme expression expr then prints the result to stdout.|
|Enables tracing for the given identifier id in the module module.|
|Dumps the current Scheme heap to image-file and exits. This feature is still experimental.|
Loads the Scheme heap from
image-file instead of compiling the init file on the fly.
This feature is still experimental.
CHIBI_MODULE_PATH A colon separated list of directories to search for module files, inserted before the system default load paths. chibi-scheme searchs for modules in directories in the following order:
directories included with the -I path option
directories included from CHIBI_MODULE_PATH
directories included with -A path option
If CHIBI_MODULE_PATH is unset, the directoriese "./lib", and "." are search in order.
