The base run time library for Elements' native Windows and Linux platform, code-named Island.

Island RTL

Island RTL is the small core run time library for the Island platform of the Elements compiler. It provides a basic class and type system, including the Object type, which is the ancestor of any classes you define yourself, as well as simple types such as String, DateTime, core collection classes, Exception handling (and the base Exception class) and more.

Island RTL (Island.fx) ships precompiled with the Elements compiler, and new projects created with one of the Island project templates will automatically have a reference to the library. Should you need to add a reference manually, you can do so via the Add References dialog in Fire or Visual Studio, where the Island.fx library should show automatically.

The code for this library is open source and available under a liberal license. We appreciate contributions.
