Revision as of 13:39, 12 July 2012

This page covers the work being done to make the compiler more extensible. Validation, for example, will be made extensible. A new model will be created so that bound AST will use IRs instead of bindings. The old binding model will still exist so that tooling written against it does not need to be rewritten. New tooling will be encouraged to use the new IR-based model.

How to run the code

Right now you can only compile in SDK mode (the IDE builder will NOT work). Take a look at the "EGL2IR XML" Java Application launch configuration that's predefined. This will prompt you a couple times if you run it, or you can create a copy of this launch configuration and hard-code some values if you don't want to be prompted. Here's an example of hardcoded arguments:

-eglpath "/home/justin/.workspaces/edt-ext/test/EGLSource/" -irDestination "/home/justin/.workspaces/edt-ext/test/batchbin" -xmlOut "/home/justin/.workspaces/edt-ext/test/EGLSource/pkg/prog.egl"
