Cx (rename pending) is pre-0.0.1. It's self-hosting, but barely.
I'm probably still a year out from *having* memory management to
speak of. I'm aiming for a sort of "D1 with macros" feature level
right now to start. At the moment, the compiler massively leaks
memory because I have neither GC nor managed memory; every array
append reallocates the entire array. And I'm not even worrying
about it, because I have about 66 other TODOs to handle first.
Give it time. :)
I'll definitely post about it once it's more presentable. Repo is
at https://github.com/FeepingCreature/Cx/ in case you want to
take a look at it- though note that you can't even build it rn
because I don't have a clean solution for the bootstrapping
problem, so at the moment the process is just "build the new
binary with the old binary" and I'm not sure that all of my
commits are even cleanly buildable with the previous commit's
binary. If you want to play with it, ping me on irc (feep in #d
on freenode) for a C backend dump to bootstrap from.
(But to answer your question, I'm vaguely hoping for something
semi-rusty with a clean separation of owning and reading
