The last little while I've been working on getting the standard library to compile to Java bytecode.
I sat down to work on it today, ran the test to see where it would fail next, and it didn't - it compiled everything in stdlib. Sweet!
Of course, I'm not actually running the code, so I can't be sure if it's compiling "correctly", other than it's passing the Java verifier so I know the bytecode is "valid".
The next step is to actually run the stdlib tests, not just compile them.
No ... now that I think about it, the next step is to implement the built-in functions for things like string manipulation and database access that the stdlib tests will require.
Back to the grindstone :-)
