a language (which is somewhat dated even in its latest incarnation).
I would love to know your thoughts with respect to that point, if you'd care to share (off list if you'd prefer). Or might you have a talk/article you could point me to?

- port rik to objc1 and have it up-to-date on ppc.Is this really a good use of your time? One of the problems with GNUstep is the perception that we’re stuck with a 30-year-old framework and a 20-year-old version of a language (which is somewhat dated even in its latest incarnation). If you care about PowerPC, why not work on supporting a modern Objective-C dialect on PowerPC, rather than on rewriting everything that you want to use in an archaic one?As far as I know, clang should be able to target PowerPC and libobjc2 should run happily on PowerPC (though will be missing objc_msgSend and imp_implementationWithBlock unless someone wants to contribute the PowerPC assembly versions - they’re not that hard if you know the target assembly, but I have no interest in PowerPC so no motivation to learn another new ISA just to write a couple of dozen lines of code for it).David_______________________________________________Discuss-gnustep mailing listaddress@hiddenhttps://lists.gnu.org/mailman/listinfo/discuss-gnustep
