3. Mal is a learning tool

Each implementation of mal is separated into11 incremental, self-contained (and testable) steps that demonstratecore concepts of Lisp. The last step is capable of self-hosting(running the mal implementation of mal). See the make-a-lisp processguide.

The make-a-lisp steps are:

Each make-a-lisp step has an associated architectural diagram. That elementsthat are new for that step are highlighted in red.Here is the final diagram for step A:

stepA_mal architecture

If you are interested in creating a mal implementation (or justinterested in using mal for something), please drop by the #malchannel on freenode. In addition to the make-a-lisp processguide there is also a mal/make-a-lispFAQ where I attempt to answer some common questions.

Presentations

Mal was presented publicly for the first time in a lightning talk atClojure West 2014 (unfortunately there is no video). Seeexamples/clojurewest2014.mal for the presentation that was given at theconference (yes, the presentation is a mal program).

At Midwest.io 2015, Joel Martin gave a presentation on Mal titled”Achievement Unlocked: A Better Path to Language Learning”.Video,Slides.

More recently Joel gave a presentation on “Make Your Own Lisp Interpreterin 10 Incremental Steps” at LambdaConf 2016:Part 1,Part 2,Part 3,Part 4,Slides.

Building/running implementations

The simplest way to run any given implementation is to use docker.Every implementation has a docker image pre-built with languagedependencies installed. You can launch the REPL using a convenienttarget in the top level Makefile (where IMPL is the implementationdirectory name and stepX is the step to run):

make DOCKERIZE=1 "repl^IMPL^stepX" # OR stepA is the default step:make DOCKERIZE=1 "repl^IMPL"

External Implementations

The following implementations are maintained as separate projects:

HolyC

Rust

  • by Tim Morgan
  • by vi – using Pest grammar, not using typical Mal infrastructure (cargo-ized steps and built-in converted tests).

Other mal Projects

  • malc – Mal (Make A Lisp) compiler. Compiles a Mal program to LLVM assembly language, then binary.
  • malcc – malcc is an incremental compiler implementation for the Mal language. It uses the Tiny C Compiler as the compiler backend and has full support for the Mal language, including macros, tail-call elimination, and even run-time eval. “I Built a Lisp Compiler” post about the process.
  • frock – Clojure-flavoured PHP. Uses mal/php to run programs.
  • flk – A LISP that runs wherever Bash is

Implementation Details

Ada

The Ada implementation was developed with GNAT 4.9 on debian. It alsocompiles unchanged on windows if you have windows versions of git,GNAT and (optionally) make. There are no external dependencies(readline not implemented).

cd adamake./stepX_YYY

Ada.2

The second Ada implementation was developed with GNAT 8 and links withthe GNU readline library.

cd adamake./stepX_YYY

GNU awk

The GNU awk implementation of mal has been tested with GNU awk 4.1.1.

cd gawkgawk -O -f stepX_YYY.awk

Bash 4

cd bashbash stepX_YYY.sh

BASIC (C64 and QBasic)

The BASIC implementation uses a preprocessor that can generate BASICcode that is compatible with both C64 BASIC (CBM v2) and QBasic. TheC64 mode has been tested withcbmbasic (the patched version iscurrently required to fix issues with line input) and the QBasic modehas been tested with qb64.

Generate C64 code and run it using cbmbasic:

cd basicmake stepX_YYY.basSTEP=stepX_YYY ./run

Generate QBasic code and load it into qb64:

cd basicmake MODE=qbasic stepX_YYY.bas./qb64 stepX_YYY.bas

Thanks to Steven Syrek for the originalinspiration for this implementation.

BBC BASIC V

The BBC BASIC V implementation can run in the Brandy interpreter:

PL/pgSQL (PostgreSQL SQL Procedural Language)

The PL/pgSQL implementation of mal requires a running PostgreSQL server(the “kanaka/mal-test-plpgsql” docker image automatically startsa PostgreSQL server). The implementation connects to the PostgreSQL serverand create a database named “mal” to store tables and storedprocedures. The wrapper script uses the psql command to connect to theserver and defaults to the user “postgres” but this can be overriddenwith the PSQL_USER environment variable. A password can be specifiedusing the PGPASSWORD environment variable. The implementation has beentested with PostgreSQL 9.4.

cd plpgsql./wrap.sh stepX_YYY.sql # ORPSQL_USER=myuser PGPASSWORD=mypass ./wrap.sh stepX_YYY.sql

PL/SQL (Oracle SQL Procedural Language)

The PL/SQL implementation of mal requires a running Oracle DBserver (the “kanaka/mal-test-plsql” docker image automaticallystarts an Oracle Express server). The implementation connects to theOracle server to create types, tables and stored procedures. Thedefault SQL*Plus logon value (username/password@connectidentifier) is”system/oracle” but this can be overridden with the ORACLELOGONenvironment variable. The implementation has been tested with OracleExpress Edition 11g Release 2. Note that any SQL*Plus connectionwarnings (user password expiration, etc) will interfere with theability of the wrapper script to communicate with the DB.

Running tests

The top level Makefile has a number of useful targets to assist withimplementation development and testing. The help target providesa list of the targets and options:

make help

Functional tests

The are almost 800 generic functional tests (for all implementations)in the tests/ directory. Each step has a corresponding test filecontaining tests specific to that step. The runtest.py test harnesslaunches a Mal step implementation and then feeds the tests one ata time to the implementation and compares the output/return value tothe expected output/return value.

  • To run all the tests across all implementations (be prepared to wait):

make test

  • To run all tests against a single implementation:

“`make “test^IMPL”

e.g.

make “test^clojure”make “test^js”“`

  • To run tests for a single step against all implementations:

“`make “test^stepX”

e.g.

make “test^step2″make “test^step7″“`

  • To run tests for a specific step against a single implementation:

“`make “test^IMPL^stepX”

e.g

make “test^ruby^step3″make “test^ps^step4″“`

Self-hosted functional tests

  • To run the functional tests in self-hosted mode, you specify malas the test implementation and use the MAL_IMPL make variableto change the underlying host language (default is JavaScript):“`make MAL_IMPL=IMPL “test^mal^step2”

e.g.

make “test^mal^step2” # js is defaultmake MALIMPL=ruby “test^mal^step2″make MALIMPL=python “test^mal^step2″“`

Starting the REPL

  • To start the REPL of an implementation in a specific step:

“`make “repl^IMPL^stepX”

e.g

make “repl^ruby^step3″make “repl^ps^step4″“`

  • If you omit the step, then stepA is used:

“`make “repl^IMPL”

e.g

make “repl^ruby”make “repl^ps”“`

  • To start the REPL of the self-hosted implementation, specify mal as theREPL implementation and use the MAL_IMPL make variable to change theunderlying host language (default is JavaScript):“`make MAL_IMPL=IMPL “repl^mal^stepX”

e.g.

make “repl^mal^step2” # js is defaultmake MALIMPL=ruby “repl^mal^step2″make MALIMPL=python “repl^mal”“`

Performance tests

Warning: These performance tests are neither statistically valid norcomprehensive; runtime performance is a not a primary goal of mal. Ifyou draw any serious conclusions from these performance tests, thenplease contact me about some amazing oceanfront property in Kansasthat I’m willing to sell you for cheap.

  • To run performance tests against a single implementation:“`make “perf^IMPL”

e.g.

make “perf^js”“`

  • To run performance tests against all implementations:make "perf"

Generating language statistics

  • To report line and byte statistics for a single implementation:“`make “stats^IMPL”

e.g.

make “stats^js”“`

Dockerized testing

Every implementation directory contains a Dockerfile to createa docker image containing all the dependencies for thatimplementation. In addition, the top-level Makefile contains supportfor running the tests target (and perf, stats, repl, etc) withina docker container for that implementation by passing “DOCKERIZE=1”on the make command line. For example:

make DOCKERIZE=1 "test^js^step3"

Existing implementations already have docker images built and pushedto the docker registry. However, ifyou wish to build or rebuild a docker image locally, the toplevelMakefile provides a rule for building docker images:

make "docker-build^IMPL"

Notes:* Docker images are named “kanaka/mal-test-IMPL”* JVM-based language implementations (Groovy, Java, Clojure, Scala): you will probably need to run this command once manually first make DOCKERIZE=1 "repl^IMPL" before you can run tests because runtime dependencies need to be downloaded to avoid the tests timing out. These dependencies are downloaded to dot-files in the /mal directory so they will persist between runs.
