Three Compilers to Make a Lexer
Maybe put this in the next post. Yeah because that's where I talk about re2c.
- The lexer is what convinced me I could finish Oil.
- The lexer contains a lot of complexity.
- Measuring Speed
- Rewriting more of the lexer in C. Not just the pattern matching parts.
- Oil states -- adding the oil language to OSH.
- Reducing size by subdiving OUTER into its components
- this will reduce speed, so it will be good to measure it.
