Back it up

This has got out of hand. I really like the work that I've been doing, and I'm certain that I will incorporate it into pacc. But not this release.

I'd finished every scheduled item on the todo list, except completing the documentation, and had considered the code frozen. It is clear from my experiments that implementing “new rep” (or “rep rules” or “for loops” or whatever they end up being called) will be a significant perturbation of the code. Dearly though I would love to implement and include it soon, the world will be a better place if I release first.

So, I'm back to putting the finishing touches to the documentation. The subtraction example can simply describe how left recursion is very hard to do in pacc at present, with a teaser that a decent solution is in the works. And with some exciting coding in prospect, I should actually be able to muster the discipline to get the release out there.

Porting and packaging

One thing pacc needs is more users. And, perhaps, one way to get more users is to reduce the friction in getting started with pacc. An obvious lubricant is packaging. Read More...

Release relief

Looking at _pacc_coords(), I noticed that it seemed to have the same realloc() bug that I'd just fixed in _pacc_result(). However, the "list of arrays" trick really wasn't going to work here. Read More...
