Ajhc - arafura-jhc

*** We are closing Ajhc project. ***

Metasepi Arafura iteration is closed. We decided to use ATS Programming Language for our next iteration. After merging Ajhc's Context Local Heap into jhc, this project will be shutdown.

Please use jhc instead of Ajhc.

A fork of jhc. And also a Haskell compiler. This project is founded by Metasepi Project.

$ autoreconf -i
$ ./configure
$ make
$ make install

For developing

First, you should use the arafura branch, rather than master branch.

You should send patch to jhc, if testing on Ajhc is good.

$ darcs get http://repetae.net/repos/jhc
$ cd jhc/
$ patch -p1 < ~/yourfile.patch
$ darcs record -a
$ darcs send

The command darcs send sends email the patch to jhc author (= John Meacham).

Perhaps you can get internal overview with following compile flow image:

Future plan

  • Benchmark (speed, memory size, compare with eLua/mruby/.NET Micro Framework)
  • No more depend on Perl (LWP and YAML).
  • Port Haskell libraries on haskell-platform to Ajhc.
  • Understand jhc's region inference.
  • Play with Google Native Client. https://developers.google.com/native-client/
  • Write Linux kernel driver with Haskell.
  • Get smaller RTS. Benchmark the RTS for running on custom FPGA CPU.
  • Start rewritng NetBSD kernel with Ajhc.
