- Oh, no!!! Another coursework! ... and to be written in Java! Aaaaarrrggghhhh! I am getting overwhelmed... :(
Things do not look good at the University... It seems I'll have to keep studying hard for the next days, but I'll do my best to at least touch my project (PopAsm) somehow.
I am back at Rio - Brazil. I hope I can resume working in my project soon (PopAsm, the Popular Assembler project).
I also bought a new joystick for driving racing games. The initial try was interesting despite I got the last rank in the easiest race :(
I have worked fine recently. Some people are sending interesting comments about the project. That's great. One of such comments suggest PopAsm to borrow an A86 feature that outputs assembly errors to the source files as comments, so they can be fixed easier. The feature will be added just after the first alpha version is released.
I have just found another project like PopAsm, the Popular Assembler. I will drop its author a line and see what happens.
Found bugs in some instruction tables entries. All have been fixed up. I believe I'll be done with the basic testing before monday. Because of the instruction set reference, the PopAsm User's Manual is near 150-pages long! Nice progress, eh?
New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.
