                      Dylan Programming Information
                      -----------------------------
This document summarizes the status of the various implementations of the
Dylan programming language and provides other information relevant to the
Dylan programming community.  This document (or a pointer to it) will be
posted to the comp.lang.dylan newsgroup on a semi-regular basis, and was
prepared by

Your comments and suggestions are welcome.

Dylan Language Summary
----------------------
Dylan is an advanced, object-oriented, dynamic language which supports
the rapid development of programs.  When needed, the programmer can
later optimize their programs for more efficient execution by supplying
type information to the compiler.  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 which make programming
more productive.

We Want Your Code!  
------------------
Please contribute to the Dylan community by sharing your Dylan libraries
with other Dylan programmers. Please upload code archives and a separate
text description to:

Dylan Code Repository
---------------------
Whether you need a priority queue or just a plain old foobar, someone may
have implemented it already. Check out the Dylan Code Repository...
