Key differences between Scheme and Fortran

SyntaxScheme has a simple and minimalist syntax, with a heavy use of parentheses and prefix notation.Fortran has a more traditional syntax, with a focus on mathematical expressions and array operations.
ParadigmScheme is a functional programming language that supports procedural and object-oriented programming paradigms.Fortran is primarily a procedural programming language, with limited support for functional programming.
TypingScheme is dynamically typed, meaning that variable types are determined at runtime.Fortran is statically typed, meaning that variable types are determined at compile time.
PerformanceScheme is generally slower than Fortran due to its focus on expressiveness and flexibility.Fortran is known for its high performance and efficiency, especially in scientific and numerical computing.
Libraries and frameworksScheme has a smaller ecosystem of libraries and frameworks compared to Fortran.Fortran has a wide range of libraries and frameworks available, especially for scientific and numerical computing.
Community and supportScheme has a smaller community and less support compared to Fortran.Fortran has a large and active community with extensive support resources available.
Learning curveScheme has a steep learning curve, especially for beginners due to its unique syntax and functional programming concepts.Fortran has a relatively moderate learning curve, especially for those with prior programming experience.
