OOC is cool. Yesterday I started writing some code in it after reading about it on the github blog. Here is the first result:
I’m extremely happy with how well this performs. Using the latest ooc Java compiler from the github trunk to handle the each() functions, this compiles down to a bunch of C code, and then is automagically compiled behind the scenes into an ELF Binary! This is totally awesome, and I have to commend nddrylliog and the other contributors for their work on this awesome project. Now I should use it for something useful :D
A quick note about getting it running on Ubuntu:
sudo apt-get install sun-java6-jdk git clone git://github.com/nddrylliog/ooc.git cd ooc JAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun/ make
At least, that’s how I did it. Then I compile all my ooc with a Makefile like this:
INPUTS=$(wildcard *.ooc) TARGETS=$(patsubst %.ooc, %, $(INPUTS)) all: $(TARGETS) %: %.ooc java -jar ~/repos/ooc/bin/ooc.jar $@
That will compile all ooc files in the directory.
