[...] Dylan (name derived from "Dynamic Language"), an object-oriented language
developed here at Apple.
Our home web page is http://www.cambridge.apple.com.
Our main ftp site is ftp://cambridge.apple.com/pub/dylan, including
experimental implementations, the FAQ, literature, etc.
Dylan combines the major efficiency advantages of static languages
(C/C++, Pascal) with the flexibility advantages of dynamic languages
(Scheme, Smalltalk). Dylan is not proprietary; in addition to Apple's
own compiler effort, there are at least 9 non-Apple implementations
under way, including alternative and commercial environments for
Windows and unix.
