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.


Made some cleanups to the LaTeX files a bit, now it looks much nicer and is easier to note some things due to some newly added macros.


I decided on using a map for input and output options of the compile method because it seems to be stronger. I will have to pass them anyway so I may as well do so, then I can fold the languages in it. Then with that I can instead use annotations similar to command options for handling specific properties of whichever option set. The option sets should remain immutable to simplify things greatly.


And instead of two classes for input and output, I should rather instead have a single class for either input, output, or both. This way I reduce duplicate code at the cost of some complexity. Actually having subclasses which are input and output languages would be better while having a primary class which permits language selection.


This new merged stuff is much better and cleaner, duplicate functionality has thus been cleared away, which is a good thing. This also makes it easier to add new inputs and outputs as needed.
