Small and Local
Advance loading .. Zips/cache
Furthermore, for performance reasons, we want to load those contents near to when we need it, neither too early nor late.
Thus, when a resource is first defined, all Acorn knows or cares about it is its URL. The URL is only loaded when interrogated by certain methods. The loading is accomplished via these steps, asynchronously (where possible) from the main processing:
Local storage: cache, cookies, user info, or worlds. What is read-only, writeable and non-viewable
Server should include ability to upload resources for integration and use by the server from anywhere in the local storage.
Server may need some sort of database structure for handling serialized data etc., account, and other rapidly changing state info.
Libraries and Namespaces
Methods can be used for managing aspects of the resource.
- .version. Might want to be able to compare >=2.0101, etc.
Require and include
libraries and seeds. Metadata and versions.
Error Handling and Exceptions
Multiple statements in a line
Multi-line comments, metadata, >/p>
Multi-line continuation - including Text
Environment and eval
Implicit call parameters from environment
return = exit (return code)
Local and Parameter Variables are allocated and initialized when their block of code is executed and can only be accessed by the code in that block. When the block of code is finished, the allocated space for these variables is freed. Local variables begin with a lower-case letter or underscore.
