I'd like to port my public domain programming language "brace" to run on OS X,
as someone said told me it doesn't build yet, but I don't have a Mac. Brief
enough? :) Brace is a dialect of C that looks a bit like python, implemented
by means of a preprocessor. It has a few perl references such as "say" and
"slurp", #! scripting with cached executables, two types of coroutines, hygenic
macros, header generation, graphics and sound functions, and various other
stuff. It's meant to be easy for kids to use it, but powerful enough for pros.
Supposing I don't win this, if anyone else has an old OS X capable mac lying
around, or is willing to let me ssh into one for a while, please let me know.
I need gcc, perl and an X server installed on it.
