DISCLAIMER: These notes are from the defunct k8 project which precedes SquirrelJME. The notes for SquirrelJME start on 2016/02/26! The k8 project was effectively a Java SE 8 operating system and as such all of the notes are in the context of that scope. That project is no longer my goal as SquirrelJME is the spiritual successor to it.
Today is my birthday, happy birthday me!
Will probably end up spending today on option parsing for the most part.
With this generic code I implement both my own compiler and the run-time interface to interact with it at the same time, thus saving time. I should look through the class library more often to determine the shortest and most efficient way to do things.
I wonder if it would be possible to automatically generate documentation from the help command into man pages by using an annotation processor or actual run-time extraction.
Added a bland readme for the home page in the fossil repository, does not say much since I have all my documentation in LaTeX. Had this idea pop into my head about filesystems. Since everything is already a class, I can do a guesting of sorts. Have a simple command that can internally interact with filesystems for k8 generation. I could have an interactive process which mounts a filesystem then uses some kind of interface then turns into a daemon. This way I only have to write the filesystem once (sort of) and files can just be placed in there at will. That would be real nice, I can test the file system and implement it at the same time. And when images come to be needing to be written, they can just use the fslayer to do that.
