Another question that I'd love to hear the answer to: What's the
difference between Pysco and something like this Self implementation
or the HotSpot Java implementation? I've never read a clear
explanation of what Pysco does or how it compares to other systems
that do dynamic compilation.
I don't know the answer to this... I suspect part of it might have to
do with 'abstract interpretation'. I'll see Armin tomorrow (at
PythonUK) and beat him up until he answers this question himself :-)
please realize that the Common Lisp community is more than 40
years old. collectively, the community has already been where
every clueless newbie will be going for the next three years.
so relax, please. -- Erik Naggum, comp.lang.lisp
