Dylan Programming Language

Overview: Dylan is a new object-oriented dynamic language (OODL) being developed by Apple. This language development effort has the goal of developing a practical tool for writing mainstream commercial applications. The intent is to combine the best qualities of static languages (small, fast programs) with the best qualities of dynamic languages (rapid development, code that's easy to read, write and maintain). It differs from C++ in many important ways that makes it powerful and flexible. Dylan as a number of features that distinguish it from C++ including:

  1. automatic memory management
  2. clean, consistent syntax
  3. fully and consistently object-oriented model
  4. dynamic as well as static type checking
  5. support for incremental compilation
  6. first-class functions and classes
