I'm glad you feel this way. Thank you.

Great! You're more than welcome to contribute. Please let me know if you need any help. > Raman , you can confirm that the whole PicoLisp runs within the 128kb of > RAM & can be deployed on the flash disk... Yes, it can run well within 128KB of RAM. You also say you have a megabyte of flash. It's really hard to fill it up :) In any case, it really depends on your App. Does it demand execution speed or extensibility? What do you mean flash disk? You mean the flash on the MCU?
