Heron-Centric: Ruminations of a Language Designer
A Cat Tutorial
by Christopher Diggins
October 31, 2006
I've just posted a fairly in depth Cat tutorial, and the Cat version 0.9.4 ... it's been a long day.


I've posted a new Cat tutorial, which provides a (hopefully) half-decent introduction to programming in stack-oriented and functional languages.

I've also posted a new Cat version 0.9.4 some bug fixes, new tests, and more commands.

The "manual" page is still quite rough around the edges, and I plan on fixing that up soon.

On the horizon is a detailed explanation of the inner-workings of the interpreter, and type-inference engine.
