Re: [Pharo-users] PharoJVM

2015-12-11 Thread Todd Blanchard
What does "on the JVM" mean? Java itself is a crummy cargo cult of a language. The only reason it has traction is for building mobile phone apps. Specifically android. Java isn't the only way to build a mobile phone app on android though. It is perfectly possible to build android applications

Where do I get this? I have to say I kind of think Pharo is missing the boat with regards to mobile devices. There is a huge demand for a mobile development platform that allows one to write a mobile app that runs the same on Android and iOS. > On Dec 12, 2015, at 03:51, Dimitris Chloupis

Re: [Pharo-users] CodeGenerator, your opinions?

My personal feeling on code generators is they are a bad code smell and the desire to use them tends to imply that your programming language isn't dynamic enough. That said I have used DNE on proto object proxies to capture messages sent and generate handlers (I have used this on Morphic to

Yes, this is another one and I would like to see a nice interface to clang that then generated all the glue code for a given library based on its public header files. Smalltalk Agents used to do something like this. You could point it at a library and it would open it and generate Smalltalk

2017-11-14 Thread Todd Blanchard
Yeah, I don't know if that is necessarily worth doing TBH. Generally enumerations are going to be default int size unless you have values that are out of range. In this case you have a function that returns a long. In a strictly typed language you would be required to do a type cast anyhow.
