Wait until scheme48 supports a 64 bit architecture? (or at least until
it is not quite as 32-bit dependant)..and then continue applying
pressue to Olin & Brian for scsh..
I've poked at building scsh on Alphas several times and keep running
into the PreScheme compiler, and the static linker. It's probably
doable by a human (or group of humans) w/o the official prescheme
compiler, but not pleasant.
- I know that Ian Horswill has successfully managed to use PreScheme to
generate hacked S48 vm's.
- I know that there is a release 0.43 of S48 that is currently being
tested and prepared for release at NEC. (OK, I have a copy on my disk,
so I'm pretty sure this is more than just rumor.) This release does a cleaner
job of dealing with 32/64 architecture dependencies. I suspect Richard
Kelsey would be willing to talk to people interested in hacking on
64-bit ports of this code.
First we get S48 running 64-bit, then scsh will follow.
