Larceny is an implementation of the Scheme programming language built around the Twobit optimizing compiler.[1][2] Larceny offers several back-ends able to target native x86 and ARMv7 code.[3] Petit Larceny is also available and emits C source code, which can then be further compiled to native code with an ordinary C compiler.[4]

Older versions (<0.98) included support for the SPARC architecture in Larceny[3], and for Microsoft's Common Language Runtime via Common Larceny.[5]

Larceny supports all major Scheme standards (R5RS, IEEE/ANSI, R6RS, and R7RS.[1] The Larceny software is open source[6] and available online.[3][4][5]
