@anarchosaurus Oh yes, it makes things a *lot* easier!
@anarchosaurus That’s nice to hear! ^^
With CHICKEN 5 it’s very very easy to make portable executables that don’t have dependencies, just like Go.
That’s really useful when you want to make a tool quickly and never thing about it again, or distribute complex applications easily. :)
