    Scheme based powerful lisp interpreter written in JavaScript

    I've added syntax extensions to my LIPS Scheme. This is a way to extend the parser while the code is parsing the input. I plan to make it work more like Common Lisp reader macros. I didn't work on that language for a while, but the idea is simple to hook the reader into the parser for syntax extension. So when syntax token is found it will call a defined function and that function can use read to read stuff consumed by the parser.
