Midway on our life's journey, I found myself
In dark woods, the right road lost. To tell
About those woods is hard - so tangled and rough

And savage that thinking of it now, I feel
The old fear stirring: death is hardly more bitter.

The Inferno of Dante, Canto I

Virtual Machine

The SPARC JIT compiler generates slow code. New compiler is in test.

Transition between interpreted code and compiled code does not function correctly. You must either interpret everything or compile everything.

JIT code is not scheduled the same as interpreted code. Instruction quanta can be unpredictably larger when runnning compiled code.


There is currently no way to get a pointer to the currently running module.


Cursor multiplexing is not implemented yet.

The bindings in the entry widget are incomplete and do not function well.


The module manager will not write a new module file.
