Satisfaction Guaranteed* > middle of freaking nowhere

Posted 28 October 2005

Ah thank god.

My family recently got a cabin in the middle of freaking nowhere of NY state. So I've been staying up here for a week as it's a much better environment to get work done. But the internet hasn't been hooked up until today. I was doing pretty well surviving for the first few days, but then I started going a little stir crazy. Everything's all...

Status check:

My dream of interactive programming continues to elude me. I've gotten it to work in special cases, but I want to be able to do it everywhere, without too much set-up work. BeanShell seems to have problems if you a) load a script, b) create an object with that script, then c) reload the script and try to use newly-defined code on that...

And, by the way, since the rendering was script code, I was able to fiddle with those numbers *live* and see the changes...

Woooo, just finished evaluating BeanShell. It's great!

The BeanShell version of that last test ran at 8 fps (where the pure Java version runs at 12 fps and the JRuby version ran at 3 fps). So the slowdown isn't too bad, plus the clincher is that I can copy-paste any performance-critical BeanShell code into java.

(ps, the reason those FPS numbers are so...


Satisfaction Guaranteed* > scripting

Posted 13 October 2005

Yeah I change my mind a lot.

After evaluating Rhino, I came to this conclusion: really no scripting language has a very fluid way of passing Java objects to a script.

So with that knowledge in hand, I went back to JRuby because a) I have a crush on that language, and b) I do know a roundabout way to pass a java object to a ruby script (just use the...
