Original Dylan Manual

Thanks to the Wayback Machine, I just discovered the original 1992 Dylan manual: Dylan (TM) -- An object-oriented dynamic language.

Back then, Dylan still had S-expression syntax, making its CL and Scheme heritage much more obvious.

If you want to see dynamic object-oriented PL design (as opposed to trial and error, plucking out of thin air, or other popular approaches) this is one of the few places to look.

(Here's another URL for the manual.)
