Wildman and the Amiga

 [1/6] from: greg:schofield:iinet:au at: 10-Sep-2007 22:34


ExecSG's HAL can be made to work with a virtualizer service, essentially making AmigaOS 4.0 a hosted system. Written by "Rogue" one of the indepedant contractors working on the OS4 project. May be of interest re the Wildman project and the coming Amiga conference This recently appeared on http://www.amigans.net in post #77 page 4 on: http://www.amigans.net/modules/newbb/viewtopic.php?topic_id=1063&viewmode=flat&order=ASC&type=&mode=0&start=60

Hello, first of all: thank you for this info! More: (I will read info in the link you posted) but can you get me more info about ExecSG's HAL (I imagine it it Hardware Abstraction Layer)? Do you think such piece can will allow Rebol (most recent version) run on Amiga? On 9/10/07, greg.schofield-iinet.net.au <greg.schofield-iinet.net.au> wrote:

HAL is the Heuristically programmed ALgorithmic computer (2001: A Space Odyssey). In french, it's name is CARL. Carl? HY

Hi Allessandro, Yes - Hardware Abstraction Layer. ExecSG is the kernel of the OS. I am not sure of its legal status (who actually owns the code) as some very gifted contractors have been involved. REBOL could be compiled for OS4 at the moement, but the product is in a little legal mess at the moment and HW is a problem. I am hoping that after the legal mess, then it will be ported to the PS3, there is interest in this but no promises (more is the pity). It occurred to me that ExecSG may be an ideal Wildman candidate (it is very small, fast and I believe very stable). Wildman has me intrigued because a script based application environment without all the other clutter strikes me as a very good way to go, and I am liking REBOL more and more for this ambition. The Friedman borthers (Thomas and Hans-Joerg) may be at the Commodore Amiga simposium at Empoli (Fi). If they do turn up it would worth having a word with them.

Yes - Hardware Abstraction Layer. I was joking! I imagined such definition. The problem about Rebol compilation is Rebol is not open source, and only Rebol technologies has the sources. So who can compile them? .................................. I'm looking for info about Wildman (for my curiosity). On 9/11/07, greg.schofield-iinet.net.au <greg.schofield-iinet.net.au> wrote:
