PlanMachine9 - any interest?

In my spare time I created a library in Ruby that mimics something I
needed at work. I call it PlanMachine9 (from outer space), and you can
find what I threw together here:

http://phrogz.net/RubyLibs/PlanMachine9/

I’m not ANNouncing it yet, because it’s not packaged up or polished at
all at this stage. I’m mostly trying to gauge interest before I
potentially waste time doing that.

Do any of you look at this and say “Oh, yeah, that would work really
well for me to do____!” If so, I’d be interested in feedback around
some aspects of it:

  • Should state transitions resulting from events be synchronous to
    the event firing, or should events be queued up and processed during a
    (timed or explicit) call to #update?

  • Is the env variable interesting, or would you always be replacing
    the machine-specific variables with direct access to variables in
    other code? (For example, the ‘obstacles hit’ count used in the
    example on that page could totally be an instance variable tracked on
    the Elevator class itself, removing any need for ‘env’ altogether.)

  • Are there any aspects of the precondition/postcondition/prelude/
    postlude/action setup that you think you would never use, that I
    should remove to simplify things?

You may (or may not) want to change the name before the first official
release. At least when I saw it my first reaction was “Cool, some more
Plan 9 related stuff for ruby like http://home.gna.org/rubyixp/:slight_smile:

I basically had the same reaction, except I didn’t know about Ruby-IXP.

Bah, all the good puns are taken. Thanks, though. Maybe I’ll keep the
name, AND steal their bunny. Ver’ cute.

How about Plan8?

I thought about that, but that might be used as the name for a later
version of the OS, too.

It’s not a name now though so you would have claim to using it first.

I opt for “Plan9.5”. :slight_smile:

Why not PlanKyu? (Kyu is Japanese for nine. Hopefully, I’ve got the
romaji right.)

Plan42 is the Answer, but it will take a larger brain, whose very
operational parameters I am not worthy to compute, to come up with the
Question :wink:

Hrm, you may be on to something there.

Perhaps Plan 57, for all the secret ingredients. [1]

BTW Of course plan 42 is the answer.
