This is OpenZz 1.0.4-4ce1, a fork of the original OpenZz distribution based on version 1.0.4-4. The original README can be found below, following the first line of equals signs in this file. This fork was made because development on OpenZz was stalled, I have a project which requires it ( http://catseye.tc/node/Zzrk.html ), and I needed to make changes to the sources to get them to build on the latest version of gcc. Shortly thereafter, upgrades to (apparently) libtool(?) caused automake to generate Makefiles which went into infinite loops at the shell level (`pstree` showed what looked like an infinite tree of `sed` and `bash`) which would take down my laptop quite readily. So, I added a simple script `build.sh` to build the `ozz` executable directly, without messing around with libraries or anything. It works on Ubuntu and NetBSD, and will (I'm sure) work on other flavours of Linux and other BSDs with only minor modifications. Running `build.sh` is recommended. Run `autogen.sh` and `configure` at your own risk. Also note: several of the tests now fail. The core semantics seem alright, so these tests have been skipped. The specific failures are: * deref_param.zz: failure of the test suite; it shouldn't be caring about an internal address, which isn't stable from run to run * double.zz: using floating-point values segfaults * list_in_cond.zz: the syntax "a.b" seems to be a syntax error * numerictypes.zz: 64-bit values wrap to 32 bits on a 32-bit archiecture * tagdtor.xx: can't open the specified .so file The verdict is that this version of OpenZz does not support: * floating-point values * 64-bit integer values * the "a.b" syntax (whatever that means exactly) * loading ".so" files Which is fine by me so long as it can still play Zzrk. -Chris =============================================================================== Zz - Dynamic Lexical Parser README File =============================================================================== Zz is a dynamic parser which is currently being developed as a front end to gcc to implement compilation of new languages (ie. TAO and others), for APE systems. These are custom build parallel processing computers used for LQCD physics research. See: http://chimera.roma1.infn.it/ape.html UPDATES See the NEWS and ChangeLog files for information on the latest changes Some support is being formulated at the project directory on SourceForge: http://openzz.sourceforge.net LICENSE The Zz library is released under the GNU Lesser GPL (LGPL). Parts of Zz are released under the GPL - see the "COPYING" file in the project root. DOCUMENTATION See the "doc" subdirectory APE Whence the name "APE"? "Ape" is the Italian word for "bee", the mascot of the APE project. (INFN, the funder of the project is based in Italy and the software is primarily developed there).
