  Advanced OOP: Multimethods
Subject:   A question

First, I much-enjoyed the article. Multimethods are indeed an interesting topic. In fact, some common patterns, such as Visitors (double dispatch), are merely a means of getting around the single-dispatch limitations of languages.


I have a question, however. Can you provide some links to existing languages which provide multimethods? I'm specifically interesting in what types of method-matching algorithms have been used.


Thanks,
-Chris
