08:33 rurban Changed now my type layout a bit. New explicit cons type (lisp-like lists), explicit Number = Integer | Float | Bignum
08:34 rurban Parser is now also a first-class object and type, and parse should be able to do at run-time, interpreted.
08:36 willthechill parser is first class?  ahhh too much magic like Perl 6!
08:40 rurban I need to make it GC safe, to be able to do big evals
08:40 rurban so I'll rewrite the support functions as potion methods from C.
08:41 rurban C is not needed, potion is fast enough
08:41 willthechill sounds interesting, but I'm off to bed now, will think about it more while I sleep  :)
08:41 rurban lua did the same, and they wrote then their regex engine in lua
08:42 rurban also the matcher and type-inferencer should be done in a high level language. even the compiler I think
08:42 rurban But for this I'll need a bootstrap, intermediate compilation to c.
08:42 rurban should not be a big deal, I think
