Oh, I need to wrap it up. I want my life backStart a topic and keep the challenge going, you don't even need to wrap it up, ...
No, seriously, we had a lot of great challenge entries and it's been fun, but it's a big time sink to get all those languages up and running and testing the solutions.
Well, when I say "all", most were pretty quick and easy to deal with. Even if it required building compiler/interpreter from sources. The big offenders here were:
GNU Smaltalk - The out of the box version with Debian cannot multiply properly.
Squeak - Almost impossible to deal with without a screen. Almost impossible to just run a solution without integrating it to some image file. took ages for Tim to explain how to get that going.
ScriptBAsic - See recent ScriptBasic thread post.
BBC BASIC - Also needs a GUI. Needs extra work to get the result out to a terminal or file.
Quite likely pointless but interesting, I've been hacking away on my own RISC V processor implementation using Scala and the SPinalHDL library. Despite diversions in this forum yesterday I managed to get my SDRAM controller working.Get back to other random pointless but interesting languages ...
It's here https://github.com/ZiCog/sodor-spinal/b ... r_tb.scala
Anyone into Scala here?
Now that we can synthesize HDL into a working FPGA using a Raspberry Pi maybe it's time for some HDL/logic design challenges.
One can use:
Anyone know any other hardware design languages that might work on a Pi?
