terra2

Terra implementation in Lua based on lx and llvm.

Status

Work-in-progress

Goals

  • fix terra bugs and warts that nobody seem to be able or willing to fix in the original implementation, and I’m unwilling to touch that C++ mess.
    • make typechecking lazy again.
    • make overloads automatic again.
    • var decl shadowing like Lua.
    • fix __for semantics.
    • macro syntax.
    • make ^ sugar for pow() and add a xor operator.
  • add some needed features:
    • struct, field & func annotations syntax.
    • nested functions with lexical scoping like gcc would really make life easier.
    • ternary operator syntax? : can’t be used, and iif() macro is meh…
    • should we add ++, –, +=, -=, *= /=, ^=, >>=, <<= or is it too much?

TODO

  • build libclang into llvm.dll
  • extend LLVM/libclang C APIs
  • terra parser
  • terra typechecker
  • llvm code gen
  • better compile-time error tracebacks
  • terra-C interface
  • terra-Lua interface
  • build & link API
  • debug symbols
  • unit tests
  • type caching API incl. generated code
