You want to look at "Building a Stand-alone Executable" in the "mzc" 
documentation (search for 'mzc' in the Help Desk). Note that for anyone 
to use the program you wrote, they will need to install the "Frameworks" 
(under OS X) or "DLLs" (under Windows), dynamic libraries (under *NIX), 
to execute the program.

The "stand-alone" compilation bundles a bytecode-compiled version of 
your code with MzScheme (command-line) or MrEd (GUI).

The dynamic libraries can be grabbed from


You will need to compile the file separately on each platform (I 
believe), but the same source should run without change on each, unless 
you do something particularly platform specific.
