Dylan.NET is a programming language targeting the CLR The output of each compilation is a .NET assembly (MSIL) which can be used right away in another dylan.NET project or in visual studio. The compiler is just a console application that means it is possible to compile programs even when you can't install Visual Studio or some other fancy IDE. If you are a technical sort of person and like programming give the compiler a try. It is free of charge to keep and use. Other tools you might need are the Microsoft .NET Framework (version 3.5 SP1 which is needed to run the compiler and the programs made) and .NET Reflector(for rendering the assembly file made as MSIL,VB,C# etc. code - you can get it from Red Gate) which are both free.
As for licensing the compiler is fully open source. In fact the compiler download includes the visual studio files for the compiler. There is a publish folder where one can find the setup.exe file for installation of the compiler. The compiler uses the Ms-PL license which can be downloaded below. The text in the license file was retieved from the open source initiative site.
Now dylan.NET has a helper library called DylanNet.dll. Look for it on this site !
dylan.NET also has an editor called the dylan.NET editor. It may be used as a primitive IDE. It has syntax highlighting of dylan.NET source code built into it. If you do not wish to use the compiler directly from the command line or directly from the exe itself you do not neeed to get the compiler separately as the editor has the compiler's binary file with it. The editor hasa build button whch starts the compiler for the current file. The run button runs the executable file produced. For dll files a warning will come up saying dll files cannot be executed by themselves.
