    Okay. But there are very few of those -- bash, DOS (can you script in DOS?), etc. They are highly specialized and of pretty limited usefulness, but they are great for doing what they are intended for. I can see a possible source for your confusion in that the "language" used in GNU make is a lot like bash.

    Perl, ruby, et. al. are not shell scripting languages; you have to use system() there just like everywhere else. The syntax is much the same as a compiled language; functionally they are capable of exactly the same stuff, as long as you don't need an independent binary to do it (eg, as with the kernel). That is why the distinction between interpreted and compiled is an important distinction. In essence, "scripting" == "interpreted". A script is something that is interpreted at runtime. So there are Java scripts, and javascript scripts, altho it may not be common parlance to call them that (probably because of the confusion that would result). "Source code" is something that is precompiled.

    Has anyone been looking at the new forum lately?

    No, you can't really script in DOS. Just execute programs. And some _basic_ things, too.

    I don't think the forum has been visited often... Gonna upload _my_ proposals.

    >> I would have it work identically (or at least seem so) to compiled C. The idea being you could take a pre-existing C program and execute it in the virtual environment for dynamic analysis.

    Another interesting option is that the interpreted code could be compiled into a native binary (provided the interpreter generates some sort of bytecode).

    Also, I just had an idea. To avoid bounds-checking overhead on array accesses (in loops, at least), you could use a special pre-checked range iterator. It's constructor (or whatever) could take a start and end index and the array in question, and from then on the accesses from that iterator would be "trusted". Just a hazy thought, but it sounds like a good idea at the moment.

    Oh, and one more thing: what language are you guys writing this in?
    Code:
    #include <cmath>
    #include <complex>
    bool euler_flip(bool value)
    {
        return std::pow
        (
            std::complex<float>(std::exp(1.0)), 
            std::complex<float>(0, 1) 
            * std::complex<float>(std::atan(1.0)
            *(1 << (value + 2)))
        ).real() < 0;
    }

    BUMP.

    Hey, you there! The new board is emptier than the Sahara desert. We need some volunteers more.
    And please, please fix the problem I've described in my post.

    This is just patently wrong.
    Until you can build a working general purpose reprogrammable computer out of basic components from radio shack, you are not fit to call yourself a programmer in my presence. This is cwhizard, signing off.

    @abachler: I know you _can_ script in DOS, but IMO it's missing some important features. Anyway, I hope Windows Powershell will take the place of the default language (cmd). Maybe it's because Windows doesn't require you to know cmd.

    Regarding my pool C/C++ skill, i can't do anything now.
    But i'd like to care the community project.
    Cheer!

    You couldn't have it more wrong.

    Swimming = wonderful and flexible
    Cycling = sexy and basic
    Running = hard and general

    I used to courier (and downhill MTB), b/t/w, and the last word I would use to describe the activity of riding a bicycle would be "flexible".

    Anyway, all you cop-outs and peanut gallery pundits better get over to the community project forum:

    Sorry, not that I am hiding, but I am feeling rather... lethargic at the moment. I also have another project for which I am behind schedule
    C + C++ Compiler: MinGW port of GCC
    Version Control System: Bazaar

    Look up a C++ Reference and learn How To Ask Questions The Smart Way

    Hmm, how far along is this planning? Would it be too late to get in on this, even if I can't contribute much?

    Do you like Monty Python's Flying Circus? Have you ever seen that skit "Philosophers Playing Soccer"*? That is how far along it is.

    But we do have our own site base thanks to Snafuist, better look at that too (before or after, it doesn't matter):

    Ah, I'm guessing it hasn't gone too far too fast.

    I'll have to keep reading.

    Agree. I still don't understand people who think that C++ is far more superior than C and that you'd ALWAYS better do it the C++ way. Yeah, C++ _is_ nice, but I prefer C.
