[sc-dev] interpreter issues

Hi all,

  I certainly agree that it would be nice to use a control interpreter
that has a large user base.  The problem is that everytime I investigate
the matter it turns out that the interpreter is poorly equipped for real
time performance.  The SC interpreter (perhaps PyrTalk would be a name for
it) has constant time method look up and pause free garbage collection.  I
have heard that the Java gc is "much improved" but am not aware of any
version that is truly realtime. Am I wrong?  

 Anyway, if it turns out that the SC interpreter has unique features, it
might make sense to try to put together a version of the interpreter alone
as a scripting tool to generate a larger user base.
