About This Document

This document introduces Dyalog's cross-platform IDE (Ride). It describes the installation process and Ride's user interface (windows, menus, customisation options, keycode/keystroke mappings, etc.).

Ride can be extensively customised; this document assumes that the default configuration is in use.


It is assumed that the reader has a working knowledge of Dyalog.

The Dyalog website contains a range of resources to help you develop your knowledge. New users might also find that it is helpful to select the Show tips for glyphs check box in the General tab of the Preferences dialog box.


Unless explicitly stated otherwise, all examples in Dyalog documentation assume that ⎕IO and ⎕ML are both 1.


Warnings about actions that can impact the behaviour of Dyalog or have unforeseen consequences are shown in boxes like this one.
