Dependency Constraint Language

The Dependency Constraint Language (DCL) is a language for specifying consistency rules and constraints in the context of software dependency management systems. DCL helps ensure that software components work together compatibly by setting limits on which versions can be used together, preventing conflicts from arising. It provides a way to express these policies in a formal manner, which can be understood by both humans and machines. When integrated within package managers or build tools, DCL aids in automatic verification of dependencies against the stated constraints.
