Multi-target compiler funded for REBOL dialect Meta
Good news! The Meta language secured its first funding for further development of the language. The development is sponsored by New York Link.
The build service and tools will be developed further. The Meta compiler currently supports multiple targets:
- Web browsers, through the web console;
- Popular PC platforms, through the run.com command-line tool;
- Atari 8-bit, through the compile.com command-line tool.
While the build service is already universal, the tools are not. The compile.com tool will be extended to support multiple target platforms. You will be able to compile for PC without needing to run the resulting program. This is also a necessary preparation for releasing more target platforms for cross-compilation, such as Atari 2600.
The build service will actually benefit from being less universal. We will set up an extra build server in, you guessed it, New York. This will ensure our customer will have the best latency and performance for compiling Meta programs.
This is the kind of thing we can do for sponsors. If you're interested in funding your particular wishes, please contact us throught email to discuss it:

Oh, different NY Link, different Fossil.

I remember using fossil - did you work on that project Kaj?

I selected it early on, ported it to Syllable and used it for my projects, including REBOL and Red.
