Towel is a typed stack-based postfix-syntaxed general-purposed functional
language. A Towel compiler
weave that compiles source code in Towel to Towel assembly
language (Tasm) which runs on the Towel virtual machine written in OCaml. More
robust design and implementation will be scheduled. A Tasm to C compiler is also
Some work need to be done before you build this project, otherwise though the project still builds, it won't compile or execute any thing:
We threw away the old Make building system and changed to Waf. Run
waf configure build
to build for Towel compiler executable
towel for now.
If you want some documentations, e.g. manuals, run
waf configure build --docs
If you want to build native executable instead of the one of OCaml bytecodes, run
waf configure build --native
To build Towel virtual machine, Run
wal configure build --tvm
After building, run compile_std.sh to compile the standard library.
You are all set!
One thing to note, before you run
./waf test, do
mkdir -p tests/temp to create a directory for
prefect to place compiled test files.
weave -h or the manual.
Implement some key standard libraries. Priority 4.
Implement type checking algorithm! Priority 5.
The module system needs to be detailed designed. Priority 2.5. This is done by now. Parts missing: libpath mechanism, and maybe something else.
A script that generates std.w and std.e. Module
Std generally covers all the
assembly instructions that aren't covered in
asm. Priority 2.
This is also done by now. Parts missing: IDK.
