lambdabotTitle: How to Write an Interpreter in One Day
ddariussorear: I'm sure he's saved a continuation.
I've written many an interpreter in one day.
soreardfranke: I presume you don't have a photo :)
dfrankesorear, no :-(
ddariusHow do you -not- write an interpreter in one day?
sorearddarius: by using C!
boswe like graydon.
ddarius"trees are just a special case of lists" blech
Lisp lists are rose trees.
PseudonymLisp trees are binary trees.
With rose tree syntax.
ddariusTrue.
I know!
Forget list/tree/pair. Magmap - Magma processing language!
Pseudonym"Magma" is the dumbest name.
sorearthere actually is a language MAGMA
PseudonymI keep thinking of abstract lava.
sorear(embedded in a CAS of the same name)
ddariusI have no idea of where abstract algebra gets half it's names.
sethkddarius, which half? :)
dfrankealgebra is doomed when we run out of synonyms for "bunch" that haven't already been assigned special meanings.
Pseudonymddarius: Easy. They just use old terms.
sorear<joke> E.Galois was ahead of his time wrt teen alcohol use :)
PseudonymPresumably the half which isn't named after mathematicians.
"Noetherian ring" gets half its name from a mathematician, and half from thin air.
ddariusYou could write a good movie about Galois' life.
PseudonymYou could, but I'm not sure how you'd depict the maths.
sorearOdd. come to think of it, I've always seen Noether and never No:ther
PseudonymShe was American.
sorear(imagine that second is a real umlaut)
PseudonymThat's how she spelled it.
ddariusPseudonym: It could still be good without the math, though personally I'd enjoy the math (and would prefer it, but that ain't ever going to happen).
PseudonymYou don't actually have to depict the maths as such.
ddariusHe was an unlucky SOB.
