Ye Olde Ramblings > And so it goes...

Posted 11 January 2010

I've decided to let my gamedev subscription lapse. The main thing I used it for was for this sounding board to discuss my personal programming projects. It's been a few months since I last posted, and over a year since I've done any actual game related discussion. And even over the years I never really saw a lot of feedback or discussion that really made...

I'm looking to do a little reworking in the Tangent syntax, parser and compiler. Right now there's a little too many exceptional cases. The main candidates for removal are properties and indexers. They'll still exist, but will be done in the phrase style. No more special cases.

The first step is done. I took the degenerate case where a method has no...
