This is likely to be nothing but a curiosity for most folks, but anyway...

I've completed an implementation of most of Jam 2.5 in the Dylan
programming language.  It was written as a Dylan reusable library so
that it could be integrated as part of the back-end build system for
the Functional Developer Dylan compiler, responsible for linking
programs generated by the compiler into shared libraries (DLLs) or
executable programs.

The source code for the Jam interpreter can be viewed at:


The documentation for the jam-based build system is at:


The version of the Dylan compiler/IDE that uses this is not yet released,
but soon will be.
