Summary:
A new generation of innovative software - software that can be built quickly and enhanced over time - requires sophisticated programming tools. Dylan, the latest object-oriented dynamic language, means innovation. Dylan includes garbage collection, type-safety, error recovery, a module system and programmer control over runtime extensibility of programs. The language is object-oriented and dynamic - like Java - yet

Abstract:

A new generation of innovative software - software that can be built quickly and enhanced over time - requires sophisticated programming tools. Dylan, the latest object-oriented dynamic language, means innovation. Dylan includes garbage collection, type-safety, error recovery, a module system and programmer control over runtime extensibility of programs. The language is object-oriented and dynamic - like Java - yet it also supports static compilation as efficiently as C++. The Dylan Reference Manual is the first complete reference to present all aspects of this unique language. It provides conceptual chapters describing the overall structure and semantics of the language and gives the definition of every class, function, and syntactic construct of the language in detail. You can also examine the BNF for Dylan's syntax and quickly look up new terms in the glossary.

Discover how Dylan protects programmers from low-level implementation details while still producing efficient executables; thoroughly integrates object model, syntax, and control structures; avoids multiple ways of doing the same thing by using simple, powerful constructs to achieve several ends; and uses multi-method dispatch to make programs easier to write, easier to understand, and easier to extend. Whether you are a current user of Dylan or are interested in object-oriented programming and modern programming techniques, The Dylan Reference Manual will help you realize the full potential of the object-oriented dynamic revolution.
