Stackist: a stack-based programming language and runtime
stackist is a series of experiments in building a stack-based
programming language, starting with Manfred von Thun's Joy language.
What I have today:
- A basic interpreter for an arithmetic language.
- A basic stdandard library
- Most of the base combinators
- concrete syntax finished and available via main.
What I'm working on next:
- All combinators (primrec, linrec, binrec, fold, ifte)
- Critical: verify that my stack semantics agree with von Thun's.
- More stdlib (working down this list: http://www.latrobe.edu.au/phimvt/joy/html-manual.html)
- Named functions
- stack operators (newstack, clear, stack, cons, swons, uncons, unswons)
- Documenting a type system for Joy
- Can we encode Joy with a fragment of System F? (rank-2?)
- Type reconstructor applicable to all original Joy programs
- Retargetable compiler
- Compile to C
- Compile to LLVM IR
- Compile to Native code
- Applying Linear types to Joy
- Linear type reconstruction
