Factor/To do/Blue sky

  • spawn a thread to reap processes on unix, instead of polling
  • launcher stream inheritance: elegant fallback on all platforms
  • maybe <process> or run-process just sets 'em to stdio???
  • windows launcher: stream inheritance
  • reload if changed inside require
  • detect circular dependencies
  • ogg.player benchmark
  • maybe put array/string lengths in the header, use more compact tuple headers?
  • xmode: correct HASHCHAR(S) behavior, do-escape; begin/end can have attributes independent of the span; endSpanSubst
  • windows console and refresh-all monitor: less than ideal
  • monitors: on windows, do reads fire events too?
  • compiled crossref should be a weak hashtable
  • fix restarts with refresh-all
  • ssl on windows using something like this: http://common-lisp.net/cgi-bin/viewcvs.cgi/cl%2Bssl/bio.lisp?rev=1.3&root=cl-plus-ssl&view=auto
  • curry, compose should be normal tuples
  • dispatch on singleton classes should be more efficient
  • Make extra/inverse into a constraint programming system capable of inverting factorial, or a system like Harmony
  • Write a new parsing library based on a traditional lex/yacc model (regular grammar, then a kind of context-free grammar) but with high-level syntax similar to OMeta
  • All vocabs in basis/ should be clean code, and extra/ should have bad code split off and externally hosted.
  • Vista symlink API

done:

  • update ce io backend -- ce is dead
  • UNC paths on Windows
  • promote compiled literals to tenured space
  • use monotonic timer for alarms
  • move strings out of the VM
  • complex, ratio should be tuple types
  • update kqueue and epoll
  • locals: [let and [let suck for single-stepping
  • for extra vocab roots, a /.factor/roots would be ideal
  • wrap existing sockets with ssl
  • better timer precision
  • parser: print correct using list if restarts were hit
  • locals: { a b c } should work
  • locals: what do we do if a macro expands into dispatch?
