Tim Jansen's blog

This is going to be another entry that I write just for the sake of writing something. There is not much to say right now. Progress is rather slow in the last 2 months, and I blame it on the summer. However I did start writing the interpreter for EDL in Java and am currently (slowly) working on a Java-native implementation of Eek's core library classes. Beside that, I am currently thinking about another major change in the Eek language, inspired by this Cedric Beust post. In short, the idea is to replace interfaces with mix-ins. There are some details that I would have to work out, but I am confident that I will do the changes to the spec in the next weeks and will then write about it here.


This blog is my dumping ground for thoughts and ideas about Eek. Someday Eek will be a programming language and system, somewhat comparable to Java in scope. It is my attempt to bring sanity to the world of computing.
At least I hope so. Right now it is far from being finished and I can't guarantee that it ever will be. I am still working on the specification, but I won't release anything before I got my first prototype running. The world does not need more vapourware and unusable beta-software. All publicly available information about Eek is contained in this blog. You can find the latest summary here.
