-Welcome to your wiki! This is the default page we've installed for your convenience. Go ahead and edit it.
-This wiki uses the [[http://www.wikicreole.org/|Creole]] syntax, and is fully compatible with the 1.0 specification.
-The wiki itself is actually a mercurial repository, which means you can clone it, edit it locally/offline, add images or any other file type, and push it back to us. It will be live immediately.
+Call //multimethod// on a variable number of types.
+It returns a decorator which finds the multimethod of the same name,
+creating it if necessary, and adds that function to it.
-$ hg clone https://bitbucket.org/coady/multimethod/wiki
-Wiki pages are normal files, with the .wiki extension. You can edit them locally, as well as creating new ones.
+//func// is now a multimethod which will delegate to the above function,
+when called with arguments of the specified types. If an exact match
+can't be found, the next closest method will be called (and cached).
+A function can have more than one multimethod decorator.
-=== Syntax highlighting ===
-You can also highlight snippets of text, we use the excellent [[http://www.pygments.org/|Pygments]] library.
-Here's an example of some Python code:
- formatter = lambda t: "funky"+t
-You can check out the source of this page to see how that's done, and make sure to bookmark [[http://pygments.org/docs/lexers/|the vast library of Pygment lexers]], we accept the 'short name' or the 'mimetype' of anything in there.
+See tests for more example usage.
+Supported on Python 2.5 or higher, including Python 3.
