Not much work this week. However, I have done some thinking about the front end. My current plan is to build things so that all work -- not simply the work of running the build instructions, but also the work of elaborating the tree -- will be done in parallel. This requirement is a consequence of allowing one step of the build fill in new dependencies for a subsequent step. I've also thought a bit about requirements for the lexical structure of the input files.
What's Up Doc?. Watched this again, probably the 5th or 6th time. I love this movie. It is a nice homage to the early screwball comedies, and is hilarious besides. Some people I know won't watch it since it starts Barbra Streisand; fortunately I'm not victim to that particular ideological narrowness.
Il Mostro. Another Benigni comedy. This one wasn't as funny as Johnny Stecchino.
As often happens, someone sent in a patch for one of the gcj bugs I was planning to fix. That's some odious debugging I don't have to do :-).
SWT, as it turns out, is not 64-bit clean. And changing it to be so looks to be a fair amount of work (which, eventually, I'll probably have to do). I find this irritating; it isn't hard to write 64-bit clean code from the start.
