(Scheme In One Defun or Scheme In One Day) A small Scheme implementation in C by George Carrette <>, <>. SIOD is arranged as a set of subroutines that can be called from any main program for the purpose of introducing an interpreted extension language. It compiles to 20 kbytes of executable (VAX/VMS). Lisp calls C and C calls Lisp transparently.

SIOD supports symbols, strings, arrays, hash coding, file i/o (binary, text, seek), data save/restore in binary and text, interface to commercial databases such Oracle and Digital RDB.

Version 3.0 runs on VAX/VMS,Unix, Sun-3, Sun-4, Amiga, Macintosh, MIPS, Cray, ALPHA/VMS, Windows NT and OS/2. It can be compiled by most ANSI C compilers and C++ compilers, e.g. gcc -Wall.,

Schimke immuno-osseous dysplasia (SIOD; MIM 242900) is a multi-system syndrome with autosomal recessive inheritance caused by a rare mutation in chromatin remodeling protein (SMARCAL 1) characterized by disproportional short stature with truncal shortness due to spondyloepiphysial dysplasia, steroid resistant nephrotic syndrome progressing to end stage renal failure (ESRD), recurrent infections caused by cellular immune deficiency and typical phenotypic characteristics (1,2).
In 50-60% of the patients with Schimke immuno-osseous dysplasia, a mutation in SMARCAL1 has been found (4).
