Implementing Idio

Implementing something as complex as Idio involves a lot of subsystems and the description of any one may necessarily involve the understanding of another. There’s no easy way to describe the “finished product” (I use both words loosely) without accepting that, as a reader, you will have to take some things as read and perhaps come back again to some sections.

Books such as LiSP ([Que94]) describe multiple complete implementations gradually upping the complexity with each one in turn. The repetitive nature is the classic methodology to pick up the various techniques.

This treatise isn’t pedagogical in that sense but simply dives straight in.
