Paradigm object-oriented
Appeared in 1999
Stable release 3.5 (21 April 2002)
Typing discipline dynamic, reflective
Influenced by Java, Smalltalk

The Bistro programming language is object oriented, dynamically typed, and reflective. It is intended to integrate features of Smalltalk and Java, running as a variant of Smalltalk that runs atop any Java virtual machine conforming to Sun Microsystems' Java specification.

Bistro duplicates the vast majority of the syntax and API for Smalltalk, and introduces the package and import concepts from Java. Overloaded operators are available for certain operators; ++ and -- are not available overloaded operators.

The syntax for declaring a class's package and import clauses are:

package: my.package.subpackage;
import: my.package.MyClass;
import: my.package.*;

One notable exclusion is the ability to import static methods from other classes.
