Re: A suggestion about the T compiler
I have a little hacque which lets you specify what you want done in the case
when you type (LOAD 'FOO) and foo.t is newer than foo.mobj. There is a
switch which you can set to one of:
binary - always load foo.mobj (this is T's normal default)
source - always load foo.t
newer - always load whichever is newer
recompile - recompile foo.t, then load foo.mobj if successful
query - ask user whether to recompile
warn - print warning message, then load foo.mobj
Some of this was present in osys/load.t but it didn't work. Also, I needed
to fix REQUIRE so that this works correctly with both LOAD and REQUIRE.
I'd be happy to pass this along to you if you like. A bunch of us have been
using it with no problems for several months.
