1.2 Choosing a Language

DrScheme supports multiple dialects of Scheme, as well as some non-Scheme languages. You specify a language in one of two ways:

The former method, Module with #lang, is the recommend mode, and it is described further in Modules.

The Language|Choose Language... dialog contains a Show Details button for configuring certain details of the chosen language. Whenever the selected options do not match the default language specification, a Custom indicator appears next to the language-selection control at the top of the dialog.

See Languages (later in this manual) for more information on the languages that DrScheme supports.
