This book is completely dependent on Pyret, and thus on the many people who have created and sustained it.
We thank Matthew Butterick for his help with book styling (though the ultimate style is ours, so don’t blame him!).
Many, many years ago, Alejandro Schäffer introduced SK to the idea of nature as a fat-fingered typist. Alejandro’s fingerprints are over many parts of the first half of this book, even if he wouldn’t necessarily approve of what has come of his patient instruction.
The second half of this book is essentially a translation into Pyret of Programming Languages: Application and Interpretation, and owes thanks to all the people acknowledged there.
This book is written in Scribble, the authoring tool of choice for the discerning programmer.
