(10/18/11 00:00:49) limjuin: my new idea is design a new language with only one big number type which covers most modern CPU basic number type
(00:01:20) limjuin: but is it a BASIC?
(00:01:49) Jomu: I was making my compiler
(00:02:05) Jomu: while reading bhopc
(00:02:10) Jomu: in modula-2, of course 🙂
(00:03:09) arnet: I was thinking about it, and I was not alone 🙂
(00:03:22) arnet: And I think if we have an architecture
(00:03:39) arnet: where we do not have fixed registers, but have just byte arrays
(00:03:56) arnet: it would be easier to get an efficient implementation
(00:04:20) Jomu: with byt arrways all around?
(00:04:30) Jomu: how so?
(00:04:33) arnet: instead of registers
(00:04:44) arnet: just allocate how many bytes you need
(00:04:51) arnet: not word sized registers
(00:04:56) Jomu: and use registers for pointers 🙂
(00:05:11) Jomu: obviously, when register is enough to carry data, it will be more efficient
(00:05:28) arnet: no, to keep variable size variables in byte array registers.
(00:05:36) arnet: One may need 3 bytes for a variable.
(00:05:46) arnet: not four.
(00:06:02) arnet: or may be 5. 🙂
(00:06:16) Jomu: or only 17 bits, think about it 🙂
(00:06:24) Jomu: or 43 bits?
(00:06:42) arnet: nice, arrays of bits 🙂
(00:07:00) arnet: if we dream, why not dream deeply?
(00:07:17) Jomu: yep, exactly 🙂
(00:08:20) limjuin: are you talking about only one bing number typed langauge?
