Intended for quickly experimenting with language changes.
Noting a similar project – byterun which implements a Python VM on top of Python by Ned Batchelder (and used in the book Architecture of Open Source Applications – implementations in 500 lines or less ). Here a skeleton of another python interpreter over python that I developed for a class.
I know it’s not the same thing, but it reminds me of the syntax-directed editor of Python’s spiritual ancestor, ABC.
I’m unaware of that editor. Is there a video of its usage somewhere?
Not that I’m aware of, but there’s a paper describing it here: http://citeseerx.ist.psu.edu/viewdoc/download?doi=10.1.1.694.3304&rep=rep1&type=pdf
(Like I said, it’s not really related, just thinking about editing Python AST’s and how Python is kinda-sorta descended from ABC.)
