public, and user-defined access controls
int32for more faithful communication with other programming languages
These facilities reinforce each other while remaining fairly small and simple. Unlike in Java, the philosophy behind them is to provide the minimal necessary facilities that other parties can use to write packages that specialize the language for particular domains rather than define these packages as part of the language core.
The versioning and access control mechanisms make the language is suitable for programming-in-the-large.
