RE: .NET CLR? was no subject



That is probably the unfortunate truth.  

John Gough, the author of the aforementioned book, is a Dean of Computer Science at Queensland University of Technology, and has vast experience in building compilers, including their Component Pascal for .NET.  

By contrast, the Python implementation was a very na´ve initial implementation by it's author's own admission.  

The Jscript folks did do a reasonable performing implementation on the CLR, so it is possible, although I think we can make it better or at least easier in the future.

Maybe if the ActiveState people had gotten this book they
would have had better performance with their Python.NET
implementation...  ;-)
