thanks for asking. Yes please:
-- Much deeper stack -- why not limited to available memory or user setting?
2000-odd just isn't enough for some algorithms.
-- Bignums -- they are in there somewhere, you see it on the start-up
messages. But I want to work with them.
--Better error messages. The sort of thing you get now ....
** Math Error: Attempt to divide by zero
** Near: 10 / length? a
....just ain't precise enough when I'm trying to debug something live that
could be anywhere in a chain of half-a-dozen called modules.
-- Better tracing for debugging. I'd like something like....
....that would give me a trace whenever the word 'write was accessed. Of
course, it should work for any word including user-defined ones:
would give me a hit on:
line-count: line-count + 1
if line-count > 66
