I've finally started work on ScalaTion, Dr. Miller's simulation system written in Scala. My first task is to rewrite the build scripts (written in Scala) so that they're platform-independent. Since Scala works very well with the java.io package, it's been relatively easy to modify the platform-dependent file operations over to Scala. However, the compilation routines are proving to be a little more complicated. I need to invoke the new Scala compiler (included in scala.tools.nsc), but the lack of good documentation on the package is creating a few headaches. I'll keep you guys posted on any new developments after this week's research meeting.
