19:37 idiosyncrat_ I've renamed my literate programming script 'Miranda' and, because I'll need new features, refactored it to use Lua's coroutines.
19:38 idiosyncrat_ It's an ideal application for coroutines because there are lots of producer-consumer relationships where both the producer and consumer are complex.
19:39 idiosyncrat_ Without coroutines, you write this sort of thing by picking one of the loops to be implemented as a loop, and the other to be implemented via flags and pretzel logic.
19:40 idiosyncrat_ With coroutines, you can write both loops as loops and explicitly jump back and forth between them -- it makes for code that is much easier to maintain and enhance.
