dear List,

it might be of interest to some people here that i have spent a non-trivial amount of time working on Maru:


if nothing else, i believe it at least became more approachable and organized than what it used to be, and maybe even developed some new features of interest.

(resending publicly at Attila's suggestion)

I'm really happy to see this, because I've been working on something similar:

https://github.com/akkartik/mu

It has a linux/ subdirectory analogous to Maru's `linux` platform that generates ELF binaries without needing any third-party tooling. The ELF binaries can run with just an OS kernel. It also has a 'baremetal' version at the top level that doesn't need an OS. (Though it does need linux/ to bootstrap itself.)

Most of it is a low-level statement-oriented language, but I've been starting to give it a very rudimentary, interpreted Lisp-based HLL. At first glance Maru seems like a really good candidate for a Mu port.
