Modules of the Dylan Library

In addition to containing the Dylan module, the Dylan library contains a variety of modules which provide extensions. Gwydion compilers export the following modules from the Dylan library:

Extensions

This module exports useful extensions to the Dylan language (see the Section called The Extensions Module). Ultimately, there will be several, more logically separate libraries that extend Dylan or provide an application framework for users. For now, we put any commonly used utilities in the Extensions module.

System

This module exports an interface to operating system calls and special, low-level functionality (see the Section called The System Module).

Introspection

This module exports reflective operations for examining classes, functions, and so on.

Cheap-io

This module exports some basic, unextendable input and output functionality.
