Re: Porting Poplog to Arm/Raspberry Pi

Wed Dec 28, 2011 2:43 am

Poplog is a low-footprint high-functionality software system for teaching and research providing incremental compilers for four languages Pop-11 (the core language), Prolog, Common Lisp, and Standard ML. Poplog was initially developed for teaching and research at Sussex university, then was sold and supported by SDL/SD-Scicon then Integral Solutions ltd, till they were bought for their Clementine data-mining system (implemented in poplog originally, now part of IBM's business software). Since about 1999 Poplog has been available as a free, open source, system, here http://www.cs.bham.ac.uk/resea.....oplog.html  Most of the system is implemented in Pop11. Porting is an interesting challenge, as there needs to be a machine code compiler in the running system and the compiler also needs to be able to spout assembler files for porting and system building. It should be possible to start from the linux+x86 system using ideas from one of the previous 'risc' ports where appropriate. If anyone is interested in collaborating, please email me. I have been producing video tutorials showing some of the features including most recently a demonstration of the process of installation and testing of poplog on x86 on Fedora 15: See the first video here http://www.cs.bham.ac.uk/resea.....rials.html

I am very interested to know whether this happened. I am very keen to use Poplog on the Raspberry Pi.
