If I'm reading this correctly, 're-implementation' means API compatibility with the current WeiDU. Can you share your prediction regarding the possible effect of the WeiDU Roadmap, if any?

I wouldn't expect that to be a problem. It's already mostly a non-issue, with the 64-bit build of WeiDU.

Are you eyeing a particular language?  It would be nice to pick one without a string/buffer size limit.

I seem to recall proposing such a scheme, yes, However, the initiative, such as it was, has rather been side-lined by the, perhaps belated, realisation that I'm going to have to high-jack your thread WeiDU is in a rather vulnerable state, technologically. Already WeiDU cannot be compiled with contemporary OCaml and who knows how long it will be until it is no longer straightforward to build old-enough versions of OCaml on contemporary operating systems.

I have slowly come to the realisation that a re-implementation will be necessary, as it would be a very extensive re-write to address the mutable strings, anyway, and if I'm doing major work like that I'd better choose a language that has parallelism. I have begun sketching on a project like that, but it might surprise you to learn I have nothing to show for it, yet.

I don't know why I didn't request it earlier but having JSON/other structured data of the entire tp2 and INCLUDE ... files would be wonderful and open a lot of possibilities.

It could for eg: provide the ability to read REQUIRE/FORBBIT etc ... statement and build logic around it, ability to know what tra files are used for current language etc.

Any chances?
