been thinking a bit about platforms. some ideas:
* 32 bit + asm makes no sense. GCC is your friend here, and should
generate reasonably good code for register machines. split language
into 2 parts: POKE for control stuff, and some kind of dataflow
language for dsp stuff.
* AVR 8 bit makes not much sense either. there is GCC and i already
spent a lot of time optimizing 8 bit opcodes.. learning the asm
sounds like a waste of time.
* don't know if PIC30 makes a lot of sense. it is an interesting
platform (PDIP available), and they are reasonably powerful, if not
a bit weird.
maybe focus on PIC18, and a small attempt to get a basic set of words
running for PIC30?
