Anyone know ZILF or Zapf? I am looking into it and will definitely need help.
Don’t know either, but I’m curious. Why are you choosing this over I7 or a more commonly-known language?
I simply am curious as to how to use it. You see, I am mostly interested in knowledge for knowledge’s sake.
so for the most part, I will use I7, but I want to know how to use zilf.
Your post is a little unclear as to what you’re having problems with. First off, you’d want the ZIL manual:
Then you’d write some ZIL code and run the file through ZILF. You run the output from that through ZAPF and you’ll end up with a z-code file. The docs explain what they are doing.
If you’re interesting in reading posts by people looking at ZIL, some of us at joltcountry.com took a crack at it the other year:
I was kind of looking for a mentor.
I could easily be excited about ZILF. In fact I was, until I found out it requires Mono. So I won’t ever touch it.
It’s an open source, cross-platform, implementation of C# and the CLR that is binary compatible with Microsoft.NET.
Mono is pretty cool. Miguel and his team did a solid job.
I’m the author of ZILF. If you have specific questions about it, feel free to post here, or PM/email me if you don’t get a response.
Unfortunately, I think the best “mentor” you’ll find is the ZIL manual that has already been posted. There isn’t a whole lot of community expertise in working with ZIL.
