There are no plans for a byte code compiler.

There is YARV I think that makes bytecode and there is JRuby which at
some point may create bytecode (Java), there is a a .NET project to
allow ruby to compiled to bytecode.

I think YARV is the Ruby 2 VM you are refering to.

Byte code interpreter, yes, compiler (something that outputs compiled
ruby files), no.

I think by bytecode compiler he means something that compiles (ie.
makes) bytecode. Its just mis-worded slightly… He said ruby 2 and that
is supposed to support bytecode, were on 1.9 now, so not long to go :slight_smile:

What an incredibly elegant example. I love it. Although I personally
will not adopt the jargon, but will still admonish others merely to not
post the answer to somebody’s question before posting the quoted
question. Mostly 'cause I probably won’t remember the term next time I
need it.

And yes, this is a 97% content-free posting, but I just couldn’t resist
jumping up and down, pointing at the example, and going “ook! ook!”
