I subscribed to the "TUNES the OS Project Mailing list". I have little to say
about programming languages at this point. Those are issues of mortar and
cement versus tar or bolts. I look at Operating systems from the point of view
of the kind of building I am trying to create, not the materials. While this
Arrows concept may have relevance to the arctitecture It is not, however,
something that I am qualified to work on yet. I eagerly await the final version
of arrows so I can have it laser printed and to add it to my collection of
materials to review. If Tunes is evolving into a language project I say FINE! At
least it isn't dying!
As far as I know, the Unios project has already been combined with the tunes
project. I will post further messages to " Unios@tunes.org ". So in summary we
will have, at first, The UniOS project that supports the upcoming TUNES system
later we will have the "TUNES based UniOS 2.0". The unios list has been comatose
reciently but I hope to see new ideas there. I intend to contribute to this
myself by delivering a prototype OS and proposing it as the model for UniOS. In
the mean time I could use some programming advice (as I can't code worth squat),
I am having trouble determining how to link code togeather. I need to do this as
any good OS needs to be dynamically linked. But I can't seem to figure out how
to do this. I am using the 286 Realmode... So I could really use some help
developing the linker/loader! :) pleeze.
