Yes, I've seen it, and I (partially) stand corrected, but we still don't know how many of that code is hand-written Scheme.
I'll point out that Scheme programs that do something that it takes millions of lines of Java or C++ typically don't have millions of lines.
No, that's cheating. As far as I can tell, we were quite explicitly talking about "lines of Scheme code".
I have programs on the order of 100000 lines of Scheme code under my personal maintenance. I see no reason why that wouldn't scale to millions, if it came to that.
So do I, yet that's not the issue. Millions of lines is millions of lines. Anyway, I'll leave it that. cheers, felix
