GSoC 2014 - Report 3

Hey everyone!

There is a lot of good news to share this week! Our GSoC task #1 (https://github.com/parrot/parrot/issues/1069) is a success!! :D

So, I have been spending a lot of time looking into and fixing 95 pmc files with a calculated number of 2230 methods for core PMCs alone...

GSoC 2014 - Report 2

Hey everyone!

I will be filling you in with what we have achieved in the last week.

So, rurban has fixed up the pmc2c compiler and it looks good to handle the write barriers. However, the rules that we had followed earlier to place these WBs in the PMCs have been changed to some extent for a better performance. You can have a look at them @ https://github.com/parrot/parrot/issues/1069.

My major work has involved verifying and correcting the annotations for the WBs in the methods for each PMC. There are about 95 .pmc files and I am about to reach the half way mark.

GSoC 2014 project - Kick off!

Hey everyone!

I am really happy to announce that my GSoC project has gotten underway! I would first like to thank everybody to have given me this wonderful opportunity to be part of the community.

My project's primary objective is to improve the performance of the method signatures. To get the hang of things and understand how method calls and GC work, I have started working on a task that requires me to optimize GC write barriers in the pmc's (https://github.com/parrot/parrot/issues/1069).
