Note: To add things to the web-visible TODO list, living at
http://www.parrotcode.org/todo, send them in to
bugs-parrot@bugs6.perl.org. They then need to be tagged as todo in the
RT web interface.
String subsystem
----------------
grep docs/strings.pod for unimplemented functions and implement them
Implement transcoding
Implement character class & properties testing (for regular expressions)
Automate string vtable generation
Fill in vtables for non-ASCII encodings: UTF-8, UTF-16, UTF-32, etc.
Find a decent way of including Unicode properties tables. (Not for
the faint of heart.)
Implement a readline function and move the "EEEEEEEVIL" out of core.ops:
String *readline(int fd, String **dest);
if (dest)
*dest will be a string, append and reuse it.
Vtables
-------
Fix vtable key support for hashes and arrays
PythonInteger/String/Object?
JIT
---
More instructions needed!
Make it work on more architectures
Configure system
----------------
Long term, should be replaced with a bootstrapping miniparrot system.
Short term, fix the dependencies (eg, more needs to depend on classes/*)
Platform-independent library creation for pbc2c.pl & extensions
Valgrind test target on supporting platforms
IO
--
Async IO
Full going-over to make sure it works
Socket IO
Docs!
Regular expression engine
-------------------------
Implement case folding
More speed!
Interpreter
-----------
Dynamic op libs
Assembler
---------
Debugging and source line number info
Bytecode
--------
Metadata (source line number info, symbol table)
pdump
-----
Dumping constants shouldn't unpack the constants, but
just print out the segment.
Stability
---------
Purify, Valgrind, and other memory badness detectors
Performance
-----------
Mo' betta benchmarks
Add profiling build options
Add the above to tinderbox
Documentation
-------------
Parrotguts currently too difficult to approach
Debugger
--------
Add commands history and completion
Load the commands from a file
Make breakpoints at labels
Read core dumps
Attach to a running program
List breakpoints.
