Dyalog for Linux
There are two separate editions of Dyalog for LINUX; Personal Edition (PE) and Commercial Edition (CE).
This product contains the full developer version of the Dyalog program which you may use to develop applications for personal use and for use by other Dyalog for Linux licences. However, Dyalog for Linux (PE) does not include a run-time version nor any run-time distribution rights.
This product comprises:
||the full developer version of the Dyalog pogram
||the run-time version of the Dyalog program (end-user GUI support, but no developer session)
||the TCP/IP server version of the Dyalog program (no user-interface)
||the ASCII terminal version of the Dyalog program ( SM user interface)
With the exception of the full developer version, all these versions may be used to deliver applications to end-users, and may be distributed to others, subject to the purchase of the appropriate run-time and/or server licences.
If you have the Dyalog for Linux Commercial Edition, you may distribute the run-time version of the Dyalog program with your applications. For each end-user of this program, you must purchase a run-time licence. For pricing see here
If you have the Dyalog for Linux Commercial Edition , you may run the TCP/IP server version and/or the ASCII terminal version to provide applications for end-users, and you may distribute these versions with your applications. You must purchase the appropriate server licence for each computer on which your application is run. For pricing see here.

All implementations of Dyalog are built from common source code and are compatible in most major respects. Dyalog for Linux includes all of the features of Dyalog Windows with the following exceptions which are not implemented:
||Shared variables (DDE)
||COM support, including ActiveXControl, OLEServer, OLEClient and OCXClass objects
||Support for the Microsoft .NET Framework
Dyalog for Windows workspaces saved under Microsoft Windows may be loaded by Dyalog for Linux and vice versa. However, GUI objects saved in workspaces are not cross-platform compatible and will be discarded when the workspace is loaded on a different platform.
The Dyalog GUI is compatible across the Windows and Linux platforms, and all GUI objects supported by Dyalog for Microsoft Windows are implemented in Dyalog for Linux. However certain differences in the appearance and behaviour of GUI objects may occur due to differences in fonts and Windows Managers.
This means that most Dyalog GUI applications designed to run under Microsoft Windows will run properly under Dyalog for Linux. Even the use of
NA to call Windows API functions is fully supported under Linux and other UNIX platforms.
