Exploring,Fighting and Enjoying

I'm coding on a library called BoopCore right now. The reason is that I was thinking about how to make the code for the new version of Qi, called Shen.

Oh, I did a small test with the Einstein riddle. Got basically the same speed as gprolog so the "prolog" compiling part is not too bad.

My idea though is that it should be used by designers of PL tools and for people with specific needs. As an example backtracking and unification can be really customized and fast.

The program itself is pure magic, e.g. has some really poor design. But this is ok for a first version. That version has to have all the features, which is not decided from the beginning, but grows as bugs are found and new features has to be implemented. This means I am Exploring ideas, Fighting the beast to get them implemented but throughout the whole process, enjoy it as if it was the best wine in the world.

Cheers!
