The documentation says that general types (bool, hashcode, and string) take an alternative flag but that is actually not the case.
So now that I implemented enough of printf, I can print the hello world again so that is nice. I guess it will be moving onto other things? Do I even need like a complete library or anything for this?
Next thing to do are the stack trace resolutions and such, because that is going to be very important! Also I am going to have to do replacements for the build system and Java SE so that I can use the same native code without needing to do native library stuff. This will just be priority classes if I do not yet have such a thing.
Okay so I now have debug traces and such, I need to modify
Throwable so that
the initial stack trace does not include the
Throwable class and anything
that initialized it.
So after implementing a few more methods now it prints the hello world again so I am not sure where to go other than continuing running programs and such. Maybe this time I should do a SpringCoat in SpringCoat but that would actually involve a ton of stuff and I am not sure I want to take that route yet. I guess the thing to do is to run some program or another. Maybe some more demos and such.
Going to need a constant time hashmap.
Okay so, I think trying to run something such as DoomRPG in SpringCoat would
be too complex and confusing of a task, since there is absolutely no source
code at all. I know I said to not do SpringCoat on SpringCoat, but if I can
run it in itself then that means it is self hosting and it probably could run
any basic CLDC program that relies just on the core library. Since right now
the library is implemented in a very minimal fashion and there are a large
number of TODOs. So if I can double launch SpringCoat that would probably
require me to implment the bulk of the library for the most part. Then of
course if it is double launched, then I guess things would work out well. I
could just implement file handling as needed. I think instead of just like
double launching, this time I implement the VM as it would be if it were not
running on the build system itself. So basically it would act like the normal
java command taking a
-classpath parameter and all of that. It would just
run exactly what it was passed. Well, I think there would just be no anything
since it could really not determine the core libraries so you would need to
specify them manually. So this would just require that everything be passed
accordingly. Of course, the SpringCoat launching script could afterwards just
use the JIT classpath I guess. Although it could really use the build class
So yes, next goal is SpringCoat on SpringCoat.
