1. Scheme tutorial
LilyPond uses the Scheme programming language, both as part of the input syntax, and as internal mechanism to glue modules of the program together. This section is a very brief overview of entering data in Scheme. If you want to know more about Scheme, see https://www.schemers.org.
LilyPond uses the GNU Guile implementation of Scheme, which is based on the Scheme “R5RS” standard. If you are learning Scheme to use with LilyPond, working with a different implementation (or referring to a different standard) is not recommended. Information on guile can be found at https://www.gnu.org/software/guile/. The “R5RS” Scheme standard is located at https://www.schemers.org/Documents/Standards/R5RS/.
