    Given that it didn’t have Java’s semantics, what semantics did it have? Later historiographers started trying to fill in that blank. Since Scheme was Eich’s original BFF, they surmised that’s where it gots its semantics from. The hypothesis was that Eich garbed his creation in a sheepskin of semicolons and curly braces to appease his corporate overlords, but that sexy wolf was inside the whole time.
