NYAC -- Not Yet an Arc Compiler As the name suggests, the goal of this project is to build a complete Arc compiler that generates native binary code. Currently it is not Arc compatible, but it is already able to compile itself. *) Supported platforms The only platform supported is GNU/Linux on a x86 32 bits CPU. *) Dependencies In order to make nyac work, you will need a working gcc install. *) Installation First get it (you will need git installed): $ git clone git://github.com/stefano/nyac.git then enter nyac directory: $ cd nyac now you'll need to unpack the precompiled binaries and to set LD_LIBRARY_PATH (this assumes that you're using bash): $ tar -jxvf nyac-build-linux-x86-32-'insert most recent date here'.tar.bz2 $ export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=build-arc:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH at this point, you should be able to test if it works: $ ./build-arc/test.arc.run *) Missing features The two most important ones: - Threading - Lists, vectors, hash tables, etc. in function call position Others (in no particular order): - Some function names differ from their Arc equivalent - Almost all of standard functions and macros are missing - 'annotate and 'rep - ssyntax - quasiquoting (but the reader expands `... to (quasiquote ...) and ,... to (unquote ...)) - bignums, ratnums, etc. Only fixnums and floating point numbers are supported - only ASCII characters are supported - hash tables are still not implemented The list could go on... Macros are supported, though.
