I'm thinking about the problem, so if there is a question, it would be "what NOW?"

Should I bother with byte codes? What's a useful minimal set of operations? In other words, not just a bare Turing machine. In what sense could it be a replacement for XS? Is a forth-like stack machine going to create headaches later?

Most importantly, am I wasting people's time by asking?

I'm trying to come up with my own answers, and learn by trying. My first attempt used the Lua ops in an interpreter prototype. Of course all my prototyping is likely going to start with Perl, because I like it.

But I'm also thinking about Perl's functions, and what it would take to "write" them in a lower level opcode set, rather than C.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
