Slow week

On February 9, 2007, Posted by , In Announce,Grrr,PowerShell, With 2 Comments

Not much happening here on the blog this week as I’ve been a bit busy with other things and also on some non-trivial PowerShell projects:

  • A snap-in version of Grrr – I realised that PowerShell alone is just too slow for it to be useful, so thought I’d have a go at doing it all as cmdlets in a snap-in. It’s fairly easy, but I’m not there yet.
  • In trying to understand the grammar of PowerShell better (the documentation is not so great, and Bruce hasn’t printed his book yet), I’ve started to write an interpreter in Java. I’ve got a more or less complete AST, and a prototype interpreter, but it’s slow going (well, I only started 4 days ago, and it’s in my spare time).

Watch this space.

    Yes, please blog about cmdlets and snap-ins that you might create. I’m wanting to get into that myself. I’ll need to get more experience with C#/VB.NET first. Which language do you think you’ll write in?

    I’ll most likely write in C# as it’s a fairly simple and straightforward language, especially if you know Java.

    I never use VB… makes me feel ill. If it isn’t going to be C# for any reason, I’d use JScript or even J#.
