Hi all:
And as it happens, and other OS projects have died just because of that component in their OSes.
My goal would be like this (based on some suppositions of course, but I'm almost certain of the following):
- Modula-3 would allows to create a development environment capable of doing the hardest work, but will easy the self-construction of:
- A driver manager system or sub-system, included in the micro-kernel, e.g Mach or ARX, or SPIN
- A compiler self-trusted (currently SPIN just certifies based on type-checking but not any other static or at all procedure that I know) harvesting of trust, in which Baby Modula-3 self-constructing compiler would help to improve the most interesting parts of the compiler itself.
- Development of specifications from documentation *available* of controllers.
- Method implementations of them being written by hand, or with some sort of hackers help.
- Self-checking of the above, and more static analysis techniques.
- After we develop that, then it is time to implement the rest systematically, on architecture basic features grounds, which would allows us if possible to detect from existing drivers creation of new device drivers automatically. Possible target languages are logical ones, since most of drivers are written in assembly, then why not implemented in a logical manner (a.k.a NEC's LIME).
Mika you have a Scheme interpreter, what is the status of that?

Thanks in advance
