Dylan (DYnamic LANguage) is a new programming language invented by Apple Computer and several partners. Dylan is dynamic, is object-oriented, and delivers efficient applications.
This book is written for application programmers who have experience working in a conventional language, such as C, Pascal, COBOL, FORTRAN, or BASIC, or in an object-oriented language, such as C++, Java, Smalltalk, or Common LISP with CLOS. Familiarity with object-oriented programming and dynamic languages is not required. We do compare Dylan to C, C++, and Java in this book, but you can read and understand the book without any knowledge of C, C++, or Java.
