Nim, Nim, Nim...

Posted at — Sep 24, 2019

I tried Nim a few years ago when it was a baby and could barely walk. Some time today or maybe in the last few days they released 1.0. Back in the day we used to say that 1.0 was not good until it was 1.0.1.  Well, I cannot say one way or the other. I have no real world experience with the language but the home page is easy to read."The Nim compiler can generate executables for distribution on Windows, Linux, BSD and macOS systems. It also compiles to C, C++ and JavaScript. “That in itself makes it awesome. Granted the full set of moving parts are still not clear. translation may be simple but where is the actual compiler.
