[pypy-dev] hildesheim2 day 2 + 3 report / status

the end of the world is near ...
following up on Carl's day 1 report here are the main results
of what happened up until now at the hildesheim2 sprint (we are
in the break day currently which we spent in the city, at
Wing-Tsun lessons or at family meetings).
The main results so far are:
- any faking can be removed now with
python2.4 py.py --file --nofakedmodules
so on the trunk you should see no 'faking' messages
during startup anymore. It will take some time
mostly because of the 'file' implementation living
at app-level. Note that we have some problems
running on top of Python2.3 at the moment and
also some more problems with PYC file support.
- Annotation can now complete without
resorting to any SomeObjects anywhere (!!)
- RTyping has only 2 Errors remaining. The next bigger
problem is getting the compiler package integrated
and bootstrapped properly.
- note that we are not working from the snapshot
but the trunk currently. After the sprint
we probably return to the snapshot approach
If you want to see more detailed daily-updated progress
reports i suggest to read and follow the commits on
Moreover, i shot a few pictures which i put here:
and here is a picture of the surrounding place
(Trillke-Gut, my living&working base):
P.S.: It appears that we will have to continue our
investigations regarding some of the current problems on
the astral plane. Armin and Carl has already spend some
time on assembler level yesterday to hunt down the
weirdest TCC interactions. But there are other confusing
events as well. um, we watched 'the nine lives of
Thomas Katz' yesterday night, btw.
Anyway, we are still taking bets if the first C-generated
annotated RTyped PyPy is to produce a segmentation fault
in the C-compiler or in the resulting binary.
