  1. I see - fascinating! And thank you for a detailed and well thought out answer. I have an interest in such things because I myself have written a Pascal like compiler - from scratch. Well, it will eventually be a compiler when it is capable of actually generating object code. At present it only reads in a program and creates a tree out of objects. The constructor of each object reads in the program and creates sub objects that mirror the recursive structure of the program and resolving procedure, function calls and variable references along the way. It uses the shunting yard algorithm for
  2. Since you've answered my question I wonder if I can ask an off topic question - out of interest. I've read that the compiler compiles from Smart Pascal to human readable JavaScript. But I have also read that it recreates all the OOP capabilities of Smart Pascal by creating VMTs directly. Since JavaScript works by sending source code to browsers - and then the browser either interprets or compiles the JavaScript, surely the VMTs are created at that point - by the browser. So where is Smart Pascals opportunity to define the VMT? I'm sure this is because I know not a lot about JavaScri
  3. Hi Lennart, Wow - yes please! I can't believe I've only just come across Smart Pascal. I've thought for a long time that as a language Object Pascal deserves universality. You guys are proving that that's possible - bringing clarity to the web! There's a reason that Wirth derived languages are used in safety critical engineering - you guessed it - clarity (structured text in safety PLCs, Ada in military avionics systems). Because that's what engineers with big responsibilities need! So I for one believe you guys are going in the right direction.
  4. I am new to smart pascal (2 days experience so far) - but I really like what I've seen so far - and I like that I could use the same language on both client and server. I need to create an https server. I've seen the hello world http server that works with NodeJS and I've been looking for an https equivalent but found none so far. It looks like I could descend one from TNJCustomServer - which is going to be quite a learning curve for me. So first I would like to ask nicely - has anyone already done this?
