news, sorta

The new parser that will be in mc2 3.1 (currently 3.0) is really very nice (based on but changed a bit from the test files recently posted.)

You'll never find a parser that's super-easy to use, but this one is in C (no intermediate file), makes sense in C, and is debuggable in C so debugging both the code and the algorithms is much much easier than something like flex, lemon, or the gazillion other alternatives.

As kind of a challenge, we started the first few passes...

Installed Nix

I recently installed the Nix package manager on my system:

Nix is an intriguing idea: a purely functional and deterministic package management system.

Also, you may need to replace eth2 with your correct interface (such as eth1).
ifconfig | sed -ne '/^eth2/,/^\s\+Interrupt/p' | awk '$0 ~ /inet addr/ { print $2 }' | cut -d: -f2

Parser Test 3 (A Return Stack & Compiler)

A self extractor for the 'lib' files that we include for this (pretty cute) little calculator are here.

Re: the compiler part. It's not much of a compiler, but it serves as a proof of concept. (It's used internally, the program is not compiled.)

Before we dig in here, I should say...

Bug in Parser Test 2.
