Hello from Los Alamos, New Mexico, where the mountain biking is 
great and the pay ain't bad for lowly graduate students...

Why javascript?  O'Reilly has a recent book on it, someone on
the list pointed me to where I could find the grammar, and 
my advisor was familiar enough with it to let me dive in. 
Only the last one was really compelling....

BTW:  This has been formally approved as a thesis topic, so
this'll eventually get done.  

Al:  a formal proposal was never requested (small department,
I guess).  

Larry (I think; the comment was months ago):  You're right --
this is much more about language implementation than anything
much to do with lynx.  In fact, one might confuse things by
saying that lynx is simply a handy OS on which to run 
BarryScript.  Wildly inaccurate, of course, but it does hold
a bit of truth.
