I'm CC'ing the gambit list.

See the script make_meroon in


Basically, it just concatenates some files to make two large files 
pre_meroon.scm and _meroon.scm, uses old-load.scm to load each form in 
pre_meroon.scm in order, and then compiles _meroon.scm.  I suppose one 
can get this to work on Windows.

Note that this version of Meroon has setters of the form 
<class-name>-<slot-name>-set! rather than set-<class-name>-<slot-name>!.

I'd be interested in seeing Simmer.

Now (twenty and some years later!) I would like to update Simmer. But I dont have a version of Meroon running on Gambit, nor I have the expertise to rewrite it. I have contacted with Christian Queinnec  but he was not able to help, since he is no longer supporting Meroon. I believe you have such a sysytem. Please, would you give me a pointer on obtain a version running on Windows and Gambit-C?

In particular, it has a lot of similar design choices to Gambit plus the Meroon object system that I’ve been using in my numerical partial differential equations course.
