[pypy-dev] FW: PyPy JIT and other languages

Hi Guys,


I'm playing around with a bit of language design, and was wondering if
the JIT is able to support languages that run by traversing an AST,
rather than by interpreting bytecode? The reason is, my toy language is
able to mutate itself at runtime, and so the AST that's running is also
exposed at applevel.


Also, can any of you give a 2 sentence description of what a rainbow
interpreter is? It looks like a very low level bytecode interpreter, but
I'm sure it's more than that.


Still following the project after all these years!
