The list is as follows: + +Virtual Machine: + + - Instruction interpreter + * Reading bytecode + * Handling instructions in memory + * Interpreting bytecode arguements + + - Instruction opcode definitions/Instruction metadata + * Translate meaningless bytes into action + * Provide O(1) instruction metadata retrieval + + - Provide interface for runtime variables + * Implement primitive data types + * Allocate resources for runtime variables + + - Implementing a F.I.L.O. data structure (stack) that extends runtime variables + * Push & pop variables on the data structure + * Push & pop 'level's of the stack + * Communicate & manage instances of semaphores to thread manager + + - Namespace implemenataion + * Global, local (traced) namespaces + * Handles memory deallocation + * Communicate instances of semaphores to thread manager + + - Threading wrapper/Threading manager + * Set up thread pool + * Handle calls to initialize new threads + * Handle thread safe variables + + - Runtime manager + * Provide program counter + * Iterate over bytecode, interpret arguements + * Handle initailzation of various runtime dependencies + * Provide interface to built-in functions + +Compiler: + + Currently how the compiler will operate will change as the runtime develops. + +Once the Virtual Machine meets the minimum requirements of implemented features, +the compiler will be drafted, prototyped, and implemented in bytecode. Once this +step is complete, further development will happen in the next step. + +Standard Library/Libraries in general: + + The standard library will be a reflection of the langauges capabilitiy, and +the functionality of existing standard libraries. + + +IN SUMNATION + + A sumnation of a sumnation of what is contained within the 'Language'.
