Live parser and compiler for devs
My goal is to create a live parser and compiler for devs.
This means instead of relying on the BI stuff,
the community has do write its own tool.
I strongly believe it will safe a lot of time.
it will save a lot of errors too! the 'bi compiler' aka o2scipt and
binarise produces some 'interesting' results sometimes that the engine can't follow.
Ok great. I will look into the code and come back to you.
If you say it is sensible to split this part to a separate project, it can be done in time.
Ok, a brief overview:
- Project WetSand and my OAC regex take care of the syntax changes between OFP and ArmA.
- DeSQS will be the tool to verify sqs code, same for SQF with a future DeSQF.
- LintCheck does similar checks for cpp,sqm,ext,bin,rvmat files.
sqs/sqf should have the same functionality in regards to detecting errors etc.
same = 'what user is used to'
Do you think it is possible for both script (sqs/sqf) and "config" (cpp, ext, sqm etc)
to automatically fix certain errors or at last suggest possible fixes?
missing semicolons and braces comes to mind.

What about writing a parser and compiler in Ruby?
You and me ... in a few weeks. Once i do program Ruby to a degree.
Though I would have to know what it actually involves :P
I was hoping rather to finish things already on the list,
instead of sticking more things on the list :P
Well I need to discuss this with all experience programmers in the dev heaven channel.
In uni we did some stuff in that area already.
From what I can remember if you define the language right in a specific way,
you can let programs generate the parser and compiler completely.

It is probably done with grammars. Have no experience in writing a parser but this should be done by someone who already did this sort of stuff. vektorboson has some experience afaik.
