1.2 Choosing a Language 🔗

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

Using a language declared in a program’s source is the recommend mode, and it is described further in Language Declared in Source.

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 DrRacket supports.
