Hello José,

there is no direct link between the CLR and the Racket
runtime. Therefore you have two options:

  *  Use interprocess or network communication to connect a Racket
     program and a .NET program.

  *  Use the FFIs of Racket and the CLR to construct a link between
     the two virtual machines.

I suspect that both alternatives will be equally complex to implement


When C++ is your hammer, every problem looks like your thumb.
