Yep, saw it. It's Scheme48 dependent though. I believe Homebrew build is based on Roderic's code [1]. What I have in mind though is being able to say #lang scsh followed by superficially scsh syntax for processes, posix calls and SRE-powered notation for string manipulation and matching. Racket standard library is so powerful that I hope I can get away with just rolling out scsh-interface with Racket facilities under the hood. It's more of a "meaty" exercise for me, than something people will find use for given that thanks to Roderic you already have scsh in your terminal. 

That being said, I just wrote to Roderic. Thanks for the advice Norman!

If all goes according to plan I'll touch down in NYC, catch a bus to Boston and join you on 28. Will appreciate any pointers, advice, words of wisdom. If there's anything other then official scsh docs and Olin's papers I should go over before hackathon do tell, I'll have plenty of time on the plane and bus. Would very much like to end 28 Sep with something runnable.
