Hello World

[ #14904 ]
After hacking the whole day and thinking of so many things I thought maybe there is someone out there who wants to know what I'm doing, so I start blogging, my life - or better my life with perl.

What I should do at the moment: Studying stuff for university exam in Computer Science Theory, you know, all that suff about context free languages, touring machines and NP problems.

What I actually do at the moment: Hacking on my URM to Parrot Assembly compiler. If you don't know what URM is, have a look here

The state of this stuff: It works, creates nice little pasm files and has no bugs (as far as I know). The problem is like with every quickhack that becomes public that I got to make it more Parrot compatible, but I don't understand everything of Parrots built system. And I don't understand Parrot::Config!

So I'm pretty stick now at the moment, having played enough with Perl 5.8.1 and not knowing what to do with URMC (besides replacing every / in my program with $PConfig{slash}).

Maybe I should start studying :-)
