Running chez after building Racket?

Some users would like to be able to run Chez Scheme "with racket additions"; that is, the copy of Chez that is built as part of a Racket release.

This used to be easy, when Chez was a separate repository. Since July 2020, that's no longer the case.


It appears to me, based on a few minutes wading around in my build directory, that it it might be possible to set library paths in such a way that you can run the "scheme" executable, and connect it to the "scheme.boot" file. Is this possible?



John - here's what I got from Matthew:

  1. go to racket/src/build/cs/c/ChezScheme and use make run
  2. to install permanently: use sudo make install there to install in /usr/local/bin
