Non-.class languages

"Support for languages which don't have a compiler will require changes to Robocode which nobody has yet volunteered to implement." I don't think this is entirely correct. Pavel has been hard at work adding support for .NET to Robocode, which I believe would add support for some other languages. Someone who knows more about it should add a note about that, though. --Voidious 16:22, 24 January 2010 (UTC)

I haven't been following his work on that front, but if his work is concentrated on loading .NET assemblies, then the comment is still valid. For non-compiled languages, you would still need some custom code for each language to load the interpreter and parse each source file to find classes which extend Robot.--Duyn 02:35, 25 January 2010 (UTC)
