Syllable, AtheOS Red is a new programming language inspired by REBOL, but compiled and open source. The language is currently being bootstrapped by first implementing a lower level dialect, in which the high level, dynamic language will be written. This C class dialect for systems programming, Red/System, has reached beta status after only half a year of development. It now supports using dynamic libraries on Syllable. Also, a new version of Syllable Desktop's FTP client, Transferrer, was released (screenshot accessing Syllable Server).

No new code, no fork, just more documentation and a clean sh build script without ruby, rebol crap (nothing personal about rebol, just want a cleaner compile way)


The build system for Syllable (Builder) is actually pretty damn good.

I'm trying to solve some problems, there exist more than 240 makefiles


Well, yes, there will be. Building an entire OS requires building a lot of components. Note that the ancient recursive-Makefile based build system was replaced long, long ago with Builder.

The very first i want to do is to update the building script, create.sh, because i not just want to build the whole system in a straightforward way, but also to assemble the whole iso and then burn first a copy of the new iso and then an installation cd.


I'm not sure if you're aware of the existing build scripts: http://syllable.cvs.sourceforge.net/viewvc/syllable/syllable/system... ? You install Syllable, run start.sh to install the additional build components and then build everything by running start.sh. Once the build is complete you can use build-cd.sh, build-vm.sh or build-upgrade.sh scripts to create installable media. It's really pretty simple.
