My main interests are in compiler writing and VHLLs (Very High Level Languages).

I've designed and developed elastiC, an interpreted language with a syntax similar to C, but with many VHLL features.

Other areas of interest in hacking:

  • embedded linux (see etlinux)
  • a bit of kernel hacking
  • Graphical User Interfaces
  • photorealistic rendering
  • artificial neural networks
  • ...

Interests in my other life (the real one...):

  • Photography
  • Reading
  • Sports (running, cycling, ...)
  • Electronics
  • ...

I've radically changed the command line parsing library API. At the same time I've added some features and I've packaged the whole thing. I've also written some documentation.

Today I had a good deal of boring things to do, and I wont talk about them :)

In the remaining time, I've started to put together (and almost finished) a small C library to parse the command line (similar in spirit to getopt() and getopt_long()). Why ? Because I don't like getopt() and getopt_long(), and also because having my own small lib, I can integrate it in elastiC with not too much hassle, and avoid depending on undependable libc features. Stay tuned.

Prepared a benchmark to test elastiC implementation of hash tables.

Very long meeting, lunch.

Then I returned to hack on elastiC. I'm trying to understand why the hell loading a shared module makes dlopen() to complain about an undefined symbol (symbol that is in the elastiC core) but only when elastiC is configured with --enable-static and --disable-shared. libtool bug ? Boh, we'll see...
