Ticket #1770 (closed RFC: fixed)
Boolean PMC without Integer
|Reported by:||Paul C. Anagnostopoulos||Owned by:||Paul C. Anagnostopoulos|
This ticket represents work being doing on a new Boolean PMC that does not inherit from Integer. The work is being done in the sleeker_boolean branch. The central idea, suggested by chromatic, is to eliminate the dependency on Integer and store the boolean value in a PObj flag.
I have implemented a new PMC that passes the boolean tests. It looks like boolean operations are about 20% faster, primarily due to the fact that they don't require allocating attribute blocks.
