A virtual machine for something almost like ruby. The verneuil process produces artificial rubies that are somewhat unlike real rubies - they are too pure and don't have the characteristics of real ones. This is a virtual machine that: * executes something that is almost Ruby (it looks like it) * and that can store its state to disk. And resume. Think: Continuations. Serializable. Is it useful? That depends. You could for example use this to * script website interaction with your user * create scripts that run for days/months * create crash safe programs (checkpoints? transactions?) * transfer running programs over the wire (agents!)? * and perhaps more STEREOID-CODE Verneuil is *eval* on stereoids. SYNOPSIS code = "puts 42" program = Verneuil::Compiler.compile(code) process = Verneuil::Process.new(code, self) process.run # prints 42 to the console. STATUS Verneuil currently handles all the programs in spec/programs. The following Ruby features should work: * Method calls * Local variables * Method definitions * if then else * while * Masking class methods * correct self * fork, join Currently this project lays sleeping for a few months - until I will need it again. That day is sure to come. CONTRIBUTORS Florian Hanke (florianhanke.com) Kaspar Schiess (absurd.li) (c) 2011-2015 Kaspar Schiess
