For the DLR side of things you might find the DLR discussions to be useful: http://dlr.codeplex.com/Thread/List.aspx

This post to the mailing list might also be useful - it covers implementing new modules in .NET for IronPython: http://lists.ironpython.com/pipermail/users-ironpython.com/2009-November/011729.html  That documentation will be included in IronPython once we start including the Python docs + IronPython specific documentation (could be 2.6.1 or 2.6.2).

There's also some useful (although fairly low-level and detailed) information up here: http://ironpython.codeplex.com/wikipage?title=More%20Information such as the exception model and information on value types.

If there's something specific that you'd think helpful let us know - I can probably work to write something up and incorporate it into some documentation.

Subject: [IronPython] Internals documentation


I'm poking around the IronPython sources and am trying to understand how things works.  I haven't found a good source of documentation that gives an overview of IronPython's internals, and how IronPython can be extended / modified.  I'm looking for more details than are available in books like IronPython in Action, which really only cover the very basics. The best overview I have found is Dino's talk:


Are there any more reference documents that I can read to get up to speed on IronPython details.

Many thanks,
