2 Syntax


This chapter describes the syntax and structure of a Dylan program, from the outside in. This is one of the two defining characteristics of Dylan. The other is the set of objects on which a Dylan program operates; objects and their types are discussed in the following chapters. This section is only an overview; language constructs briefly mentioned here are explained in detail in later sections. A formal specification of Dylan syntax appears in Appendix A, "BNF."
