The Long and Winding Road.

   25 March 2004, mid-morning

I slept through my Compilers class today. Cormack has gotten better at lecturing in the past few lectures I’ve been to, but he’s still a bit too rambling for my liking. Nevertheless, I still think he is a very nice professor.

Our compiler is doing a lot more stuff now. I think we have pretty much completed A2 now. We do analysis for almost every part of Ada/CS. There are holes here and there, I think the most obvious two are subtypes and function overloading. Regardless, it’s quite impressive watching it determine that A(1,1)(1).B(1)(1) is a function that returns an array of records that contain an array of arrays. Well impressive for me anyway.

We have 5 days to get the compiler to make code. I’m hoping we can get it all done. I have faith. We’ll have to wait and see.



  1. STOP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. (i mean stop making changes to your website.. not stop doing compilers... i haven't actually read this blog entry... )

  3. I'm a little bit addicted. Anyways, changing the style sheet takes all of 5 minutes. I muck around while my computer chugs along trying to compile are compiler.

Don't be shy, you can comment too!

Some things to keep in mind: You can style comments using Textile. In particular, *text* will get turned into text and _text_ will get turned into text. You can post a link using the command "linktext":link, so something like "google": will get turned in to google. I may erase off-topic comments, or edit poorly formatted comments; I do this very rarely.
