 Dylan programming language - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Dylan is essentially a cleaned-up and simplified version of CLOS, an object-oriented programming system built on Common Lisp.
Programs can be written on a continuum from fully dynamically typed to fully statically typed, allowing for both rapid prototyping and later optimization.

 NewtonScript - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Newton was originially going to be programmed in the new Dylan programming language, but a lengthy series of delays combined with the "Not-Invented-Here syndrome" eventually led to it being abandoned.
Since the language would be used for the entire system, as opposed to just running on an existing operating system, it needed to run as fast as possible.
This allowed the Newton programs to be developed on a Macintosh running the Toolkit, where the programs would be compiled and then downloaded to the Newton for running.

 Scripting programming language   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Some scripting languages are designed for a specific domain, but often it is possible to write more general programs in that language.
Scripting languages are often designed for interactive use, having many commands that can execute individually, and often have very High-level programming language operations (for example, in the classic UNIX shell, most operations are programs themselves).
Languages of this sort are designed for a single application and, while they may superficially resemble a specific general-purpose language (e.g.

 Chris Page’s Weblog of Doom
Dylan has a simpler, more orthogonal programming model in which there is essentially only one kind of function (called a “generic function”), which is polymorphic, similar to a C++ virtual member function.
Dylan programs are written as though objects are always allocated on the heap, but objects may be allocated on the stack if there are no external references to them.
Dylan compilers are also expected to perform certain kinds of inlining and partial inlining that you might not expect of a C++ compiler (or that might not be possible due to the language semantics and compilation model).

Another issue is that most LISP systems are interpreters, and therefore tend to be slower than compiled programs, which in the computer industry is an undeserved kiss of death.
In most languages when the program is compiled the toString for Window is looked up and replaced with a pointer (more or less) to the method.

The Dylan Hackers believe that the Dylan programming language is one of the best yet designed for general-purpose programming.
We are eager to buy and use Dylan products from companies such as Apple or Harlequin but we've learned from bitter experience that the best way to ensure we can always program in the language of our choice is to have the source code for the compiler.
A major design goal of Dylan is to produce a language in which complex programs can be rapidly prototyped in the same way as with dynamically-typed languages such as Smalltalk or Lisp or "scripting" languages, while at the same time enabling performance comparable to statically typed languages such as C or ML.

 Mixed-Language Programming   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Most programming languages aim to be "the one language needed to meet all of your programming needs," but the reality is that no one language is sufficient.
Recently, some scripting languages have been designed so that an instance of the script interpreter may be embedded in another system, even extended by that other system, where that system is written in another language (typically C or C++).
Most modern approaches are using object-oriented technology, where the implementation of an object is handled by a component written in a single programming language, and other components written in possibly different languages may invoke methods on that object.

 Book review: Programming in Dylan   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
This example is hopelessly contrived, and the most interesting topics for a programming language -- I/O, modules, libraries and interfaces -- aren't demonstrated by the sample program at all.
It's unfortunate that Dylan now seems to be effectively moribund: Apple abandoned it; the sole commercial version from Functional Objects appears to be comatose; and Gwydion Dylan, the free compiler originally from CMU, doesn't appear to have a sufficient developer population to maintain and extend it enough to keep the software viable.
One problem is that a Dylan compiler is much more like a Lisp compiler than like a C compiler and is correspondingly more complex; while reading the book I could vaguely imagine how I'd write an interpreted version of Dylan, but writing a compiler, even a stupid compiler, seemed much more difficult.
