I am a faculty member at Spelman College in Atlanta. I am teaching a
course on Programming Language Design and Implementation. I am
planning to introduce Scheme in about 2 weeks. And I thought a good
project would be for them to add functionality to a simple language
interpreter written in scheme. Now I am looking for some comprehensive
information on Interpreters. I am looking for something about the
length of chapter or so that gives some good foundation information on
how interpreters work. Even if it is too much for undergrads I can
always rewrite parts, or at least explain it so they can get it.

Any help is greatly appreciated.
