QuickSilver Compiler Observations – 2011-Feb-24
February 24, 2011
I have now been working with QuickSilver for several weeks and these are my observations:
There are two major bugs that I am aware of:
1) “self” within blocks does not work correctly.
There is an untested compiler fix for the problem.
2) there seems sometimes to be a problem associated with “super”.
I need to develop some test cases to clarify the circumstances.
Smalltalk indexing is implemented as 0-based; should be changed to 1-based
Smalltalk has the advantage of more closely reflecting the way that humans model the world.
