Description:
A free, open-source implementation of the Dylan language for Unix-compatible systems. Originally developed by the Gwydion Group at Carnegie-Mellon University, the compiler is now being maintained and extended by a global volunteer effort. The major component of Gwydion Dylan is an optimizing Dylan-to-C compiler. Dylan is an advanced, object-oriented, dynamic language which supports the rapid development of programs. Nearly all entities in Dylan (including functions, classes, and basic data types such as integers) are first class objects. Additionally Dylan supports multiple inheritance, polymorphism, multiple dispatch, keyword arguments, object introspection, and many other advanced features.
