Key differences between Lisp and Scheme

SyntaxLisp has a prefix notation syntax, where operators are placed before the operands.Scheme has a simpler and more consistent syntax compared to Lisp, with a prefix notation syntax as well.
ParadigmLisp supports multiple programming paradigms, including functional programming and procedural programming.Scheme is a dialect of Lisp that focuses on functional programming and emphasizes simplicity.
TypingLisp is dynamically typed, allowing flexible and dynamic programming.Scheme is also dynamically typed, providing flexibility in programming.
PerformanceLisp implementations can vary in performance, but some implementations are known for their efficiency.Scheme implementations are generally designed to prioritize simplicity and expressiveness over performance.
Libraries and frameworksLisp has a wide range of libraries and frameworks available, although the ecosystem may not be as extensive as some other languages.Scheme has a smaller ecosystem compared to Lisp, but still offers libraries and frameworks for various purposes.
Community and supportLisp has an active and dedicated community, with support from experienced developers and enthusiasts.Scheme also has a dedicated community, although it may be smaller compared to Lisp.
Learning curveLisp has a steep learning curve due to its unique syntax and powerful features.Scheme has a relatively gentle learning curve, making it more accessible for beginners.
