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.


If I actually wrote that C compiler based virtual machine I could potentially have a rather fast virtual machine, even if the output C code is rather poor. Although C++ would possibly be easier to generate for.


However C++ lacks stuff such as finally which would be rather a pain to implement.


Would probably not do anything at all and would distract me from my current work.
