by earl, 5235 days agoSlava Pestov justifying Factor's new module system: "In effect, the operation of loading a source file was a function of the current image state together with the contents of the file. This simplistic approach is used by every interactive language that I'm aware of, including Lisp, Ruby, Python, etc. However, it has a number of serious flaws which only manifest themselves when one reloads code on the fly, and makes heavy changes to the system in the process."
