Description

I was about to update languages/BASIC to account for the recent find_global/store_global removal, but found that it's got a lot of old syntax that needs cleaning up.

  • milestone set to 0.9.0

perl testsuite.pl still doesn't work, but as of r35390, wumpus is functioning again.

$ perl compile samples/wumpus2.bas && perl testrun.pl
INSTRUCTIONS (Y-N)? Y
WELCOME TO HUNT THE WUMPUS
  THE WUMPUS LIVES IN A CAVE OF 20 ROOMS. EACH ROOM
HAS 3 TUNNELS LEADING TO OTHER ROOMS. (LOOK AT A
DODECAHEDRON TO SEE HOW THIS WORKS-IF YOU DONT KNOW
WHAT A DODECAHEDRON IS, ASK SOMEONE)

     HAZARDS:
 BOTTOMLESS PITS - TWO ROOMS HAVE BOTTOMLESS PITS IN THEM
     IF YOU GO THERE, YOU FALL INTO THE PIT (& LOSE!)
 SUPER BATS - TWO OTHER ROOMS HAVE SUPER BATS. IF YOU
     GO THERE, A BAT GRABS YOU AND TAKES YOU TO SOME OTHER
     ROOM AT RANDOM. (WHICH MAY BE TROUBLESOME)
TYPE AN I THEN RETURN ?

  • platform set to all
  • milestone 0.9.0 deleted

A few points:

1) This really isn't a stopper for the release on tuesday, so I removed it as a dependency on the 0.9.0 milestone. 2) We really need to get this out of the parrot repo. We can move it to Squawk ( http://code.google.com/p/squawk) unless somebody wants it moved somewhere else 3) Somebody more knowledgable about BASIC (or at least the specific variant of basic used here) should triage this and see how much work it's going to take to update/fix it.
