Hmmm.... I think I'll recode the scanner module for Bolt, my newest project, a new language -- not
even alpha software yet. I put too much overhead in it for an initial
auto-registering token identifiers and scanner classes], especially since I'm not sure if it will work well or as fast as
a simple scanner. I'm sure that I won't be adding any tokens at runtime.... ASCII and Unicode are pretty
well defined, as are commonly used things that you may have heard of -- they're called 'numbers' and 'strings'...
yes, and characters and symbols too! ('m', !@~) :)
I'm toying with an idea for Bolt -- what about, when I
runtime, creating extensions to 'object' that allow objects to reside on different VMs, connected through a
networking protocol, such as TCP/IP, as a lightweight method of doing distributed computing? Of course, I'll
eventually implement CORBA, as I would want to create a Berlin server in Bolt [as soon as both Bolt and Berlin
mature :) ], but it may be helpful nonetheless. And quicker to implement. What do you think, eh?? [No, I'm not
Canadian.... :)] Mail me at danpost at
users.sourceforge.net if you have ANY ideas on what an ideal language would be like. Well, back to
homework... Oh, wait!! I'm done for the day.
