Re: Passing a slice of strings to a variadic function 2 days ago

From Drew DeVault to ~sircmpwn/hare-users

Passing by to say that allocating a slice of formattables is one option,
but another option is to just enumerate the strings and call print in a

let x: []str = ...
for (let y .. x) {

Avoids an allocation (but if the output is unbuffered it will bottleneck
on write syscalls).

Re: Writing a Unix clone in about a month 4 days ago

I did consider busybox (and also toybox) but I'm not particularly fond
of the huge kitchen sink approach. They're also not as portable as they
seem, you need a fairly beefy POSIX implementation to get them to work.

Overall sbase is the ideal choice in technical terms for a small OS with
a limited POSIX footprint.

ASan is still definitely relevant with debug::, though my earlier work
on this needs polishing up. Once this lands I can probably take a closer
look at it. One point of note is that it will probably be necessary to
accept additional options for ASan, like '-Iasan:disable=rt::*' or
something, or perhaps we can configure those sorts of things out of
