3. Variables

Dylan supports two kinds of variables: lexical variables and module variables.

The term environment is used to refer to the set of variables that are available to a given part of a program. It includes both module variables and lexical variables.

Variables can be set to new values with the := special form, which is described in this chapter's section on Assignment.
